Very weird.

Read something today relating hypotension to chronic inflammation. Also know that "a-smooth muscle actin" (ASMA) commonly infects blood vessel walls - it creates blockages and mini-aneurysms. The blockages help create high blood pressure, while the aneurysms can burst and the resultant bleeds lower blood pressure.

Most of today's epidemics involve a-SMA and cause inflammation - and vascular weirdness. Check it out here:
