I can also confirm about this problem to Whenever i have it on It also seems to effect my character like for example if i move from the safe place to an area with enemies i can't draw my sword i can only move. And the Negative effects stay on there should be a option that removes all negative effects.

You're using the NUM 7 option don't use that if you're planning on picking up ANY important items. Turn it off. NuM 3 is the one that you should be using.
Game isn't multiplayer far as i know. So doubt they care.
