PhpStorm freezing quickly and frequently after update to v2022.2

Hi, I recently upgraded to PhpStorm 2022.2. I'm on a Mac running macOS Monterey v12.5.  Now, I get about 3-5 minutes of use out of PhpStorm before I have to restart it. After that time frame, typing gets delayed, class/method lookups stop working, and I am unable to copy and paste (it pops up a little window saying "copying" and never finishes).

This is bringing my work to a halt. Is there any way I can downgrade to the lower version, or is there a fix or update I can apply? I'd be happy to supply additional information on my end if that would be helpful.

I figured out how to downgrade to 2022.1.4 and it seems to be better now, but 2022.2 is pretty much unusable for me. Here are the details for the version I downgraded to:

Unfortunately, it is hard to say anything for sure without checking logs first. Even if you did perform the downgrade, there is still a chance that 2022.2 log files are still on disk. Please check the "~/Library/Logs/JetBrains/PhpStorm2022.2" folder, is there anything left?

Hi Vasiliy! Thanks for the reply. Yes, the logs for 2022.2 are all there and I have them zipped. Is there some place I can send them to, or is there a way to submit them here?

Thanks! For now, 2022.1 is working great so I'll keep using that until I see the update.

Please try installing PhpStorm 2022.2.1 RC build, does it perform any better? Just in case, here is the link:
