Thank you Jari! Like a dolt I should have done the disable all plugins and then reenable until there may be a conflict. Oddly it appears to be Relevanssi Premium that’s causing the conflict. Have yet to test it but I think the non-premium version is fine. The network tab just seemed to have admin-ajax.php timing out when the calls were being made. When it comes to AJAX though (let alone what’s under the hood in WP admin) I’m over my head.
