You definitely need to call your doctor and tell him what is going on. When I was between that ages of 20 - 35 I suffered from migraine headaches. Many times, up to 48 hours prior to getting a headache I would experience visual disturbances. I would either lose my vision for several hours or have flashing lights and patches of dark spots. At first, I thought I was having a stoke. I later learned from my doctor that migraine patients can have all kinds of visual disturbances and or auras. Not all of these disturbances result in a headache afterward. My daughter, now 25 experiences the exact same thing. Both of ours tend to follow a period of stress.
Make sure you call your doctor. A neurologist would probably be the best choice since you a dealing with the brain. Try and keep a log of when these spells happens and what happens afterward. The more information you can give your doctor the better.
