Blood pressure rises instead of falls when I stand up. Is that abnormal?

In brief: Possibly

The normal rise in BP after standing is brief (<1 min).
A sustained rise in BP would be abnormal and would imply hyperactive vasomotor function.

In brief: No

Your blood pressure can go up.
When you stand up, blood return to your heart drops and the body will compensate to increase perfusion of blood to the rest of your body.
