What causes numbness and pain in right arm while smoking?

Hi thanks, sometimes when i smoke weed my right arm goes a little numb, i get very scared and stand up and do a few jumping jacks that usually fixes it for a while, i sometimes think its all in my head but yesterday a sharp pain came through so i know its not, should i see the doctor or just not smoke weed

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. There is no reason that weed smoking can cause numbness on your right arm. Over and above, your numbness goes off when you do some physical exercises. As you suspect, the problem is just in your mind. When you obsess about hand being numb, that happens. Don't worry.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck. Take care.
