Some variables and collections have been reset - Gallery View

I am building a PowerApps and have a Gallery that has been working for weeks. Today I modified my Sort(Filter( syntax for my gallery. Everything was working until PowerApps froze. Now I am receiving an error stating some variables and collections have been reset. The variable that was reset was the Set(varItem, ThisItem) in the gallery to open up a record. I have removed the data collection, saved then re-added the collection. I am receiving errors on all instances of ThisItem within my gallery. I am using the same browser as I always do (Microsoft Edge 44.18362.449.0). I have read other have had this issue, yet their solution did not resolve my issue.


Ideas greatly appreciated.

Are you able to restore your previous version? 


Remove the "varItem" and type it in again or try to change it to something new and see if it works. 

@PBIUWO , thanks for your suggestions. I have tried removing the variable, saving then adding a new variable with a new name, same issue. The issue seems to lie with the ThisItem syntax. Anything referencing ThisItem, gives an error. I have another app that is referencing the same collection and there is no issues there. 

I have restored to a version that was working earlier today, but same results.... I can not understand how PowerApps would be this greatly effected by a computer freeze.
