Brief Answer: Yes, please go to hospital Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic. Your systolic blood pressure is high. It needs immediate consultation in view of you having high cardiovascular risks in past history. Thus I would suggest that you go to the hospital. Going to physician office may take a while, whereas you will get immediate help in emergency room. Take care. Dr Vaishalee
