Character swings weapon and tools only at waist level

Game mode: Singleplayer
Problem: Bug

Ok so this happened to me twice now, started a new game and everything works fine. Logout and when I come back in my character is no longer able to swing where I am aiming. ie i am missing most hits against an alligator unless it is on higher ground despite my crosshair being pointed at the alligator. This happens on tools as well for instance I cannot hit a corpse with an axe because the horizontal motion of it is always waist high.

I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the game to try and make the problem go away but when I logged back into my character I still had the issue. So I started over back at character creation and played with no issue. Then I logged out and when I came back to that game the problem is back.

Problem still exist even when I disable all mods.

Update: Killing myself managed to fix the issue… a bit annoying having to start at half health but at least I can play.
