Unable to affect previous layers once too many layers are added

Hello community, I'm in need of a little advice/help. I've been working on retouching an image using a retouch workflow i recently learned from PHLearn, but once i begin adding more layers, the previous layers no longer work the way they did at first. I am unable to manipulate the lower levels as i could when first creating them. Then when i hide the top layers, the bottom layers look..... odd. For example, my blemish layer now shows blemish strokes, which were not visble that way at first, and when i add more nothing happens. When i try to go back and manipulate my Freq Sep layers nothing happens. This is my first time working with so many layers so i'm not sure if this is normal or if i'm just doing something very wrong. So far, the only solution i've come up with is deleting all the layers above the one i want to re-manipulate, do what i need, then move forward again. It's making this already new process a bit more difficult. Thanks for any help or advice

It looks like your upper layers are covering your lower layers. Did you stamp any layers, or duplicate them? Do your upper folders contain any smart objects that may be blocking the view of the lower layers? What blend modes are being used on your frequency separation layers? I'm afraid we need to see the expansion of all these folders to hazard a guess on specfics...
