Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?

Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 9 months ago.

While this in not "normal" it is not uncommon.

As long as the memories are not causing you any problem in your daily life there is no need to worry about them.

If, however, you find that they are interfering with your daily activity, work , relationships etc. then it would be prudent to consult with a team of experts consisting of a clinical social worker, psychologist and a psychiatrist.

Such a team of specialists can help you deal with these bad memories and the negative affect they may be having on you.

It's not causing me any serious problem but it's stressful and very annoying. Why does this happen?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 9 months ago.

That is very hard to say without a complete history, examination and workup....and sometime, even then, the underlying cause is not found.

However, treatment could very well help.

How tall are you? How much do you weight? Any weight change? Does anything make it better or worse? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history including mental disorders?

140lbs, no weight change. I used take ecstasy, smoke marijuana a lot about 7 years a go for about 6 years. I bad tripped very bad a few times. After taking ecstasy, I had mood swings which put me in bad mood and that's when this bad memories came and bothered me so I don't do anymore. But now, the bad memories come as I explained above even when I don't do deugs.
