Thanks for trusting HealthCare magic for your health problems.

As per your description, it seems your blood pressure (BP) is still Not under control that's why you are feeling headaches, chest pain, uneasiness.
Consult physician as soon as possible. Get your BP checked.
Get your ECG done.
Start BP medication as per physician advice.

Take low salt and cholesterol diet.
Start meditation and yoga to keep stress level down.
