Compression stockings do not make your blood pressure go up.
They are used to keep the veins compressed and to help prevent fluid from building up in the legs such as in the case of lymphedema. They are alaso commonly used in patient who have varicose veins or who have calf dvts.

In brief: No
The only possible effect that graduated compression stockings could have on your blood pressure would be to make it go down in the limb with the stocking.
There should be no possibility of compression stockings making your blood pressure go up.
