Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

Your BP is very high and it is an emergency situation. If you have not taken your amlodipine,
then please take it. History of kidney failure is predisposing factor for high BP in your case.

In all probability, the headache is due to the hypertension. Even if you do not have insurance, I would suggest that you visit the ER on an urgent basis. Additionally, do not drive yourself and call for help.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
