Should I be concerned if I have sudden bouts of blindness, described as a large black dot covering eye followed by a headache and heightened senses?

In brief: Probably migraine

This sounds like a variant of visual migraine.
Compare your two eyes during the next attack and see if it looks the same from each eye. If so, it is definitely a migraine. Otherwise have your ophthalmologist look it over.
