Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.

Well as you had already taken your blood pressure medication Metropolol and Norvasc so you should hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

And limit your salt intake.

Take OTC Aspirin.

You can take Norvasc 5 mg again after 4 hours if your BP will higher than 170/90 mm Hg.

Take proper rest.
Eat a bland diet.

If your pain is getting worse then see a doctor at ER.
