My BP is 204/110. And i had 2 heart attacks

My pressure was 188/103 so I went to the hospital. I have had 2 heart attacks previously. At the hospital my pressure was 204/110. There was no news regarding my EKG and had been sitting in the ER for 4 hours and left. Should I go to another hospital.

Dear Patrick,
Welcome to healthcaremagic forum...
High blood pressure with blood pressure reading of systolic blood pressure more than 180 and diastolic pressure more than 110 are prone to risks of retinopathies, intracerebral bleeding, renal failure and heart problems... The risks of these complications are higher with sustained high blood pressures..
Yes, you need immediate attention to reduce blood pressure.. But I wouldn't suggest you to change the hospital now as stress and transportation can further increase blood pressure which will increase the chances of complications...
The best solution at this point is to stay as calm and relaxed... Let the doctor's attend to you. You can consider changing the hospital (if you are not happy) once your Blood Pressure comes down...
Wishing you fast recovery and good health
