Does hypertension aggravate Chiari symptoms?

I had decompression surgery in 2012. In the past year, I have developed hypertension. In the last couple months, some of my Chiari symptoms are returning (dizziness, throbbing in ears, feeling faint if I laugh too hard). Has anyone experienced an increase in Chiari symptoms with hypertension.
