Question: Hidden Apps Appearing as Not Purchased

I’ve bought a lot of apps over the years so not to long ago I hid some of my old purchases but now whenever I search for an app I hid it’s appearing as if it weren’t purchased in the first place, instead of showing a download icon I get the price (buy) button, any idea why ? Also if I hid purchases and can’t remember if I bought it and it now has the buy button how do I know if I bought it or not, and for the record I don’t have iTunes so I can’t unhide purchases, I remember this being a problem a long time ago my question is why hasn’t Apple fixed it, and will I be charged if I click buy even though I already paid for it *sigh*

Would any of those hidden apps have been purchased under a different Apple ID? If they were, apps downloaded under a different ID are tied to that ID forever. So it's possible, if you're using a different ID, the apps will not be associate with your current ID and would in fact require you purchase them again.
