Yesterday while playing the beginning of the game, when escaping from the dragon, I had to fight spiders. In the corner it said I had been poisoned. I had forgotten about it until now, and I was wondering about the side effects of poison. Because for one, people tell me how sickly looking I am when I go to alchemy/potion shops. And also, I was walking around exploring, and all the sudden I had become over encumbered. My weight carrying limit was at like 325? But now it is at 300.
Ive read other people's things about go to the Talos statue in whiterun and it will cure it, but that didnt work for me. I have been to every alchemy/potion shop I can find and no one has a cure poison potion. Others say that poison will go away after some time. There is nothing in my active effects page except for resist frost, from being a nord. So is my game glitched somehow or am I poisoned still?
