Black Shiny Silver Spot

I was just wondering I have been seeing spots and floater and I know its from migraines/possible siezures activity. But lately in the middle of the night or when I wake up suddenly in the morning I get  or see these bright big and small black spots with flashes to them. This is totally a new thing and it is scaring me. What are some causes for this? I have been to an opthomologist and he said my eyes were fine, I check my bp regulary and for the most part it is fine. When this done happen I feel really weird. Any information would be most helpful.

If it is something thal always happens every  morning, it could be some normal physiologic response that your body is experiencing.  If the complete eye exam looks totally normal, then that should be a big relief and you should be able to look at it more from a vascular viewpoint.  In other words are there times when you have decreased blood perfusion to the visual cortex of the brain or possible even decreases perfusion to the eyes themselves.  A very complete workup for cardiovascular and metabolic causes might be helpful. Other than that, you should keep a detailed journal and report it to your doctors.
