    Based on the current edits you've recently made, I suspect that you had 5 edits waiting in the queue. The queue has been cleared, so try again now. Please review this page prior to editing.

    @Fezter is correct too many edits that are queued up for review by the same user.

  • @DaminiJain Can you ease up on your trivial edits please. I've rejected a few as being no improvement and one as actively harming the question. I didn't see this one which got approved but shouldn't have because it harmed the question, i.e changing "sum" to "some" was incorrect.

As pointed out by Luke, one will find possible reasons why this happened in the Meta Stack Exchange post: Why is the edit button disabled?

Which reason exactly triggered the message I don't know, but could be what Fezter suggested: five suggested-edits pending review (#3).
