I've been having these blackouts for a while now. they don't last particularly long. maybe a second or two, no longer than perhaps a blink. I've ignored it up to now, always putting the excuse that maybe it was a light flicker or something. But it's happened three times today, in a bright room, with no lights, and I feel like I can't ignore this problem any further. I'm worried that it might be something serious.
I get them no matter what I'm doing. sometimes I wont have one for weeks, sometimes I'll have a few a week.
I'll also note that I do wear glasses, and I have an incredibly strong prescription. so strong that the NHS now pays for my check-ups.
Also I've been having allot of headaches recently. not bad ones. but they do happen.
I'm just wondering if anyone has some insight before I go to my local opticians.
