Help,bp going way up

I was diagnosed with high bp a couple of years ago.Long story short: I manage my bp pretty well for the most part without rx meds. Recently my pressure has been going up but I can't take my meds because they give me a severe headache. Last night I got up in the middle of the night and I knew something was wrong, real sick to my stomach, and bp was 174/124. Called 911 (a first for me, I was really scared) when rescue got there it had gone up to 180/130. After getting to hospital, within an hour of laying in the bed, bp came down without any meds. Of course they figured I was just a hysterical woman. Today, if I am sitting up or moving around my bp shoots way up, if I go back to laying down my bp comes down. My bp has never done something this weird before, any ideas of what could cause this?
