Mark, those are classic symptoms of the onset of migraine. The vision thing is called phosphenes, I call it 'the shimmeries'. It freaks you out, no doubt. I also get tingling in my teeth at the onset. It will progress to my lip and my right hand if the attack does hit. It is an awful feeling.
I still quite often get these 'precursors' to migraine but, thankfully, the attacks rarely develop anymore. I hit the O2 tank or if I can't do that, go out and get some fresh air and I can usually, through meditation/biofeedback, talk myself out of it. I know that sounds weird and hokey, but hey, it works for me.
Sorry, I know this sucks, but I don't think you're dying.
