I've come across this issue occasionally. My best guess is that when you open the PDF in Illustrator and save it as a new PDF with whatever changes you made, the file become embedded with 2 sets of data: "PDF Data" and "Illustrator Data". Acrobat and Preview etc view the "PDF Data" while when you reopen it in Illustrator, it just views the "Illustrator Data".Solution: Open the PDF in Preview, hit Print, and in the bottom left of the Print window select PDF and then Save as PDF. This new PDF document should be saved with just the data of what you see in Acrobat/Preview, and when you open it in Illustrator it should be that same data. Occasionally when you do this trick, the text will come into Illustrator all garbled. As a best practice, you should ideally only be working from the original Illustrator file and not PDFs, but if you must, when you first bring in the PDF into Illustrator to edit, save it as an Illustrator file so you have that good version, and out put as a PDF to send etc, but always work from the Illustrator file.
