I have seen confetti looking figures, shapes, and patterns at night since the age of 4. They used to give me really bad panic attacks and kept me awake. But now I sleep with a night light and it helps a lot.
Have you asked your parents if you were eon medication for ADHD at a young age.. if not you can rule out side effects from a med.. but there are many brain wave disorders that can cause this. and many people deal with this at various ages.. you may consider asking for an EKG just to rule out brain abnormality which can cause people to see things wide awake.
