Hi,

As per your description,your blood pressure is very high and I strongly recommend you to visit ER as it's emergency hypertension with associated symptoms like headache,lightheadedness to prevent complications like stroke,heart attack.

Call 911 now.

And take OTC Aspirin if you have it at home.
