In brief: Probably

When dysautonomia exists, the system no longer functions in a balanced or sufficiently rapid manner. Studies show acute inflammation is associated with a temporary deterioration in cardiac autonomic nervous system function in healthy subjects.
Abnormal autonomic function is often found in as and RA patients. Moreover, most inflammatory peptides if released in the cerebral vascular cause dilation.
