For the past several weeks, I've been having many unwanted memories of when I dislocated my knee two months ago. Whenever it happens, I tend to focus on random details of the event as it was happening. Sometimes I remember it by accident and for a moment I get overwhelmed with the memories and it totally changes my mood. Has anyone ever had these before? Could you consider these flashbacks?

Were you on LSD, or did you suffer a psychological trauma when you dislocated your knee? If not, then the answer is probably "no", given the definition of flashback: "a sudden and disturbing vivid memory of an event in the past, typically as the result of psychological trauma or taking LSD."

Maybe you are just having memories to remind you that you only have two knees, and you shouldn't dislocate number 2, until number 1 has had a chance to heal.
