There are just as many spazzes at 5nl.
You say you were profitable at 50nl and 25nl, how many hands are we talking here?
Variance is just so much bigger than most players realise. This guy on 2+2 did a 1 million hands in a month challenge. He's a winning reg. at higher stakes but did the challenge at 2nl. Look at his sessions, sometimes he ran 20 buyins under in a session. I don't mean to be a dick here, but maybe you aren't as profitable a player as you may think.
You also say you haven't played that many hands at $5nl. Are you relying on opponents stats such as fold to 3bet over statistically insignificant sample sizes? The only reasonably reliable stats over anything less than a four digit sample size are things like VPIP and PFR.
*EDIT: 10K hands is literally nothing.
