I can think of three possibilities:
I did some hunting based on your comments, and think it is most likely the first option (you are playing on an unpatched version).
listed under the 1.05 patch:
To gain more souls find the items noted in the previous question and equip them (bare in mind that the symbol of avarice decreases your health slowly) and update your game through the internetthat should give you the most souls you can possibly get bar completing the game and going through to NG+
