In brief: Need to see doctor

It’s helpful to see your doctor during an attack, so she can ask the appropriate questions to diagnose you.
There are a number of things that can cause similar visual disturbances, such as brain damage, tumours, ischemic optic neuropathy (damage to the optic nerve) and other optic disorders. Even if the symptoms are coming and going, it’s very important to rule out other causes.

In brief: Migraine or worse

Without going to a doctor ypu should try a migraine headache food diet and avoid many otc drugs.
You should see a physician to insure that it is only a migraine that is not causing silent damage and not a sign of other causes or problems.
