Do you have a history of migraines or seizures? I would suggest getting a physical and/or neurological work-up as sometimes these kinds of symptoms can be caused by neurological issues that require treatment.

Sometimes flashbacks can also be caused by a history of trauma though it sounds as though this is not the case for you as you mentioned that they are not images of painful things.
