Thanks @Dalton! I think I may have found something else that will help. When logged in to the back end of your WP Engine website, hover over the left-hand menu item and click on WP Engine. Your General Settings window should pop up. Make sure your “Object/Transient Cache” item is set to Disabled.
This fixes the problems I am having while editing my themes.
