In brief: Yes or no
Ligament laxity can be a manifestation of a disease (usually hereditary) but most often, it is just the way you are made.
Some people are loose-jointed and some are naturally stiff.

In brief: Sometimes
A certain amount of ligament laxity falls within the range of normalcy but, certain extreme cases of hyperelasticity are associated with various syndromes which can have diverse symptoms on various organ systems.
