High Systolic Blood Pressure during Echo Stress Test

Dear Doctor,
I have searched this site for info on this question and have found nothing.  Therefore, can you please comment on the following:  While taking a stress test, I experienced a systolic blood pressure of 190 with a diastolic of 70.  This after only a couple of minutes of mild walking.  I also started out with some non specific ekg changes.  Is a systolic blood pressure of 190 normal for mild exertion?  Blood pressure prior to exercise was very good.  Thank you for any info you can offer.
Sincerely,
Ginny

Yes, I would say it is within normal range.  It is normal for BP to increase during exercise and then drop to lower than pre-exercise after exercise.
