Thanks for providing more information.
Well in my opinion your BP is very high and as you have headache so it is advised to visit ER ASAP for prompt treatment.
A high blood pressure emergency usually refers to a sudden increase in blood pressure itself which causes problems (usually to a number higher than 180/120 mm Hg).
As you are already taking anti-hypertensive medications and your BP is raised so you need to undergo a clinical examination by your doctor to rule out the cause of secondary hypertension.
Even either your BP medications dosage should be adjusted or opt for other medications.
Also take specific diet for hypertension -DASH diet

I hope this helps.
If you have any further query then feel free to ask.
Positive feedback and bonus are highly appreciated.
Thank you.
