 Hi @michaellanfield welcome to BuddyPress Trac and thanks for your

 My guess is your issue exists since you've updated the BuddyPress plugin
 to version 2.9. In this release, the profile field description was moved
 from the default theme templates to the profile field object logic. A
 theme can have their own version of BuddyPress's theme templates, adjusted
 for their specific layout. When the templates aren't updated yet for the
 latest version of BuddyPress, this means that the profile field
 description still exists in the theme's templates. If that is the case,
 the profile field objects display the profile field description next to
 the one that is part of the theme template.

 My assessment is that this situation applies to you, which means that the
 BuddyPress templates concerning profile fields within your theme need to
 be updated. Please contact your theme author and refer them to this
 explanation as well as the

 I've highlighted here and
 [https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7613 another ticket] that
 concerns this issue.

 If my assessment is wrong, please reopen this ticket and let me know.
