Possibly a transient ishemic attack, a mini stroke, possibly a tumor, possibly a detached(ing) retina.
Don't discount age at all for any of the above possibilities, and you should see a doctor urgently.
Going deaf and blind, even for a few minutes, is not normal.
If you are under an extreme amount of pshychological stress, it could be hysteria, but either way, go see someone.
Now, if your vision kind of dulled, and your hearing seemed to go "far away", but you didn't lose both completely, it could be blood sugar or blood pressure related, especially if you had been sitting a while and stood up suddenly. Could even hve been whats known as a complicated migraine, which can mimic a stroke.
The realm of possibilities is rather large, and since you didn't go into a lot of detail on the exactness of the symptoms, all anyone can offer is opinions.

wow man thats terrible to hear. my worst fear is going blind. kind of hard for an artist to work that way, but i have heard of it happening before.
I would definitely want to know what the doc has to say about it.
i hope you will be ok.
it could be a mini coma(?) maybe a seizure? you could have gone into and thought you were just chilling in the dark, but really you are seizing?
could be poor circulation to your brain, possible embolism?
i really have no clue, so please dont get freaked out from anything im saying.
i am really curious about this, but i will give you a prognosis worthy of ats...
aliens did it with brainwave binurals and they scanned every memory youve ever had, and are now plotting a way to trick you into thinking your grandma and elvis are going to arrive and take you to a special place you knew when you were a child, BUT WATCHOUT! because its actually a lab where they get you to do awful things.
beware of snowcones.

but you surely will only get speculation at best here.
stress can do that sometimes i guess, but didnt sound like you were very stressed.

have you read this thread? I wrote it a while ago.. this is what migraine does to me every couple of months
btw, check your meds, read the side effects, maybe there is something in there

Ok, i didn't know where to put this so move if need be mods.
Anyway last night i was watching the tube and all of the sudden i started going def and blind at the same time. It lasted for about 3 min. I was so frickin scared i freaked out. Does anybody know what could have caused this. This has never happened to me before. I'm fine now.
Edit to add: I did make a doctor appointment, just thought id throw that in there because i know somebody will say it.
