I actually fixed this problem myself by changing max_input_vars in php.ini
This might not be your problem but php 5.3 has a limit of 1000 input vars. When you have a lot of fields with say the collapsible field or repeater field you will get up to over 1000 variables pretty easily. I just upped mine to 10,000 and everything is working correctly.
