Consider evaluation: If you are young and otherwise healthy, it sounds like you might be having an ocular migraine. However, these symptoms can also be concerning for carotid artery disease, heart disease, Giant Cell arteritis or TIA's. A full ophthalmic exam with possible exam of your heart, carotids, and blood work could decipher these possibilities.
