An initial thought raises a concern of a complex migraine variant. Dysphrenia hemicranial transitoria may be occurring. However, the blindness may signal the need to thoroughly investigate vascular function. See a local neurologist and commence a full workup.

Sudden vision loss is a medical emergency. An ophthalmologist can determine the cause. Do not delay, since some forms of vision loss are correctable, but many are not. Also get checked for past infections with common diseases like Covid-19, Lyme disease, etc. that can cause cognitive deficiencies.
