In brief: Not necessarily

High blood pressure does not necessarily cause pedal edema (swollen feet).
This would more likely be from venous disease, obesity, lymph problems, liver disease, kidney disease, or heart disease. High blood pressure often goes hand in had with these. Some blood pressure medicines (calcium channel blockers, eg) can cause swelling too.
