I’m no medical professional, but I do get migraines. This happens to be sometimes before one comes on. The actually migraine doesn’t come until I’ve had the weird flashing lights for about 15-30 minutes. Hope everything is ok!

I’d get it checked out – those tingly dots happen when your blood pressure drops (as in before a migrane, or before passing out)…if you are experiencing them when you haven’t stood up in a hurry and you don’t regularly have migranes, you should probably see your GP just to make sure your blood pressure is high enough and that you don’t need any further investigation.
Did you feel dizzy while getting the spots?

Do you wear glasses/have bad eyes?  Only reason I ask is because I do.  I was told to watch for those sort of instances because it could be retina detachment.  It’s something you should get checked out ASAP.  I was told to go to the eye doctor as an emergency appointment or to the ER if it was at a time the eye doctor was closed.

I am not trying to freak you out or imply that’s the problem.  It was my first thought and figured I’d share it with you.  I do hope it’s nothing serious.  Please keep us updated.

Those are called auras if you want to google them for more information before you make an appointment.  I have them before migraines and have had to pull over when driving once because my complete field of vision became blocked!

I get optic migraines… sounds like what you have! Nothing to be worried about… but you should go to your ophthalmologist to get your retina checked just in case!
