**trigger warnings: family mention (brother and father); sexual abuse; animal abuse; child sexual abuse. VERY GRAPHIC**

note: i have been formally diagnosed with complex ptsd.

i’ve been very sick for a week now. while i’ve been sick i went through a mental break of sorts. the medicine i took interacted with my usual mental health medication though it said it wouldn’t. i had constant nightmares.

anyway, at one point as i was trying to fall asleep, i had what i think was a flashback of some kind and i couldn’t make out a male’s face making me act out things on our family dog. i feel like it was either my brother or dad for reasons i don’t need to get into here. i could feel it in my hand.

the second time it happened i felt like it was in my mouth. like my brain signalled to me it was in my mouth. i had a panic attack and dissociated.

has this happened to anyone before? this kind of memory i mean. the only way i can describe it is like a phantom pain... you know it’s not there but your brain is signalling it’s there and you can feel that it’s there..... the last time a memory like this happened i was severely drunk for it to come up. could these be false memories? i am not bringing them or wishing them upon myself or fixating on them... any help is appreciated.

basically, what is this physical flashback called?

usually it is just called somatic flashback. or body flashback.
it is not a rare experience although I have to admit that it is one of the more uncomfortable ones.

I was beaten with certain objects. I sometime get twinges where I was beaten and then realise I have just seen the object. I feel it before I am conscious I have seen it.
