Is there a connection between smoking weed, acid reflux and joint weakness/pain ?

Is there a connection between acid reflux and joint weakness/pain? I have noticed that my acid reflux is correlated to smoking weed, also that I ve had weak/painful joints at the same time. Is there a known connection between smoking weed, acid reflux and joint issues? My mother suffers the same symptoms and reactions.

Thanks for writing to us.
The acid reflux itself is not likely to cause a joint pain but smoking weed may be associated with an increase in anxiety leading to an acid reflux as well as multiple joint pains. Avoiding smoking weed is the best treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
