Default White flashes...are they dangerous?

Tonight, I had my fifth "white out" or "white flashes" in the past 2 weeks. Yahoo answers say that it might be a mini seizure (I've had seizures when I was a baby), that I'm on the verge of fainting, low blood pressure (can't be that, I eat regularly and am healthy), or that I'm losing my vision. Which is it? Should I be worried? I need to know, because I may have to take a day off to see the doctor.

Seizures can be psychologically induced, anything disturbing?

White flashes can be caused by alot of things and are some what dangerous if you're driving etc. They don't last long. But I'll -TRY- and list common factors of them.

Dehydration. You'll have them if you're not retaining enough fluids.
I forget the term for this but its a chemical malfunction in the brain that sends out the wrong message which can cause muscle spazes or white flashes.

Jerking of the eyes. Sometimes if you eyes jerk about ( I've done this alot) You can give it to your self, kinda like taking the palms of your hands an pressing them on your closed eyes, untill you get the fading white light. Buts I dunno alot of people who's done this besides me.

Consult a doctor. You can't be too careful with your health.

Yes, I agree. You should really see a doctor... they'd give better opinions than people on online forums o_O

Don't trust us. Most of us a little kids who lied about our age to get through the COPPA stuff to register on the forums, anyway.

Go to a Doctor.

ask a doctor because we don't know CRAP about medical stuff unless we're studying to be a doctor!

My mother told me to rest up and take some vitamins. She said that if I have white flashes again then I'm going to the doctor next week. The only symptom I get after I have them is that I'm suddenly feeling faint, like I'm about to faint. It can't be dehydration, I know with my job I'm walking outside in the heat for an hour or two, but I drink water every 10 minutes.

Worst case scenario: brain tumors cause white outs.

I've been getting that a lot since I was in High School, and I'm still alive now~
