not seeing changes committed to readme file

I committed changes to my repository’s readme file, but I only see the changes when I go to edit the file (so they’re saved somewhere). I even deleted the file and made a new one, but am still seeing the original version. I’m not sure what’s going on. I’m new to github and only have 1 repository. 

On what page is it exactly that you are not seeing any changes? Does looking at the README file on the commit page itself show the changes?

To add on to @mpboom’s questions, is this a public repository by chance? If so, can you share the link to it here? If we can see the repo, we might be better able to help.
