In brief: Exercise helps HT

Walking on a treadmill or any other exercise that causes you to breath faster and more deeply and gets your heartrate[pulse] up will elevate your BP during the exercise, but as you get better conditioned it may lower your resting BP for a long time after. If this doesn't help, see your primary provider for further evaluation.
Good luck!

Dr. Tokarz is correct, but you may need to contact your family physician sooner depending upon how high your blood pressure is now.
