In brief: Appointment

You need a dilated eye exam by an eye md to examine the retina.
It's possible you have a retinal detachment , but other possibilities include a posterior vitreous detachment. The latter is more common and less of a visual problem. The former has to be treated. Floaters can vary from small discrete spots to veil- like. Retinal detachment often results in flashes and a rather gray or dark shadow

This sounds suspicious.
...Could be a retinal detachment--- seek care soon from your local ophthalmologist!
