Brief Answer:
I recommend to go again to ER...

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!

I read your query and understood your concerns. From what you are saying it looks like hypertension complicated with wheezing (it may be a sign of hypertensive crisis).

I recommend to go again to ER to treat your BP because hypertensive crisis should be treated at emergency room with antihypertensive and analgesic (pain killers) drugs.

Hope this was of help!
Wish you health!
