Does Marijuana smoking lead to pleurisy?

I have been diagnosed with pleurisy as of yesterday night and have a pretty good understanding of what it is that I m dealing with, however I have a few concerns. Can marijuana smoke cause pleurisy symptoms to become worse/ more intense/frequent.? Also if I have pleurisy and make the choice to continue smoking disregarding the pain, can the results of that decision be life threatening/fatal.?
