Brief Answer:
This are neuritic pain.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
Possibility of viral infection is more likely.
And this kind of infection can cause neuritic pain which causes flashes like symptoms.
So drink plenty of fluids orally. Take paracetamol or brufen if you have.
You can also do warm water gargles and steam inhalation.
All these will give you temporary relief untill you visit doctor tomorrow.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
