Yes, an abnormally high blood pressure over 140/90mm Hg with symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, chest pain, palpitations or shortness of breath demands an ER visit.

Your systolic blood pressure is over 140mm Hg and you have dizziness, you should go to the ER and have yourself evaluated.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
