"The breakpoint will not currently be hit..."

I'm working on an add-in for ArcGIS Pro, and I am having some trouble hitting breakpoints in my code when debugging via Visual Studio.  I am receiving a warning stating "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document." 

I had previous been able to debug the add-in and hit my breakpoints in the code, but I'm not sure what I did.  After add a few new controls, I seem to be unable to hit any breakpoints in the code.  I've googled around a bit and tried some solutions found in StackOverflow and elsewhere, but I can't seem to resolve this issue.  Has this happened to anyone else before?  Additionally, when I click one of the controls in my add-in, nothing seems to happen, and then the control will turn gray and become disabled.  I haven't seen this behavior before and I'm not sure what I did, as everything was working as expected earlier today.
