If : If you are still experiencing these symptoms you need to see your doctor right away. If you are unable to get an appointment then you should present to the urgent care. You need to be treated for your high blood pressure and you need an ekg to check for an irregular heart rhythm. Also a cause for your headache needs to be investigated. You may also need blood tests etc. Best of luck.
