Brief Answer:
Probably migraine attack

Detailed Answer:
Dear
I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering
I think you are right, it is aura as a prediction of migraine.
You should take Advil right now (at that moment)
Migraine attacks will be less in frequency as ages up
It is reccomended that you schedule a brain MRI just to be safe
Best regards
