I m having a acintillating scotoma and I m a little dizzy. I have had Scintillating scotoma in the past (a few times a year -- it usually passes in 45 minutes), but never accompanied by dizziness. I am not having a headache (and have not had headaches associated with the Scintillating scotomas in the past).
