Repressed memories are traumatic memories that have been retained in the unconscious mind. It is theorized that they remain in the unconscious mind until the conscious mind is psychologically able to deal with them.
Not all researchers agree that repressed memories are real. It’s very difficult to determine the validity of a repressed memory. In addition, your experience with “repressed memories” is very uncommon. They typically are uncovered in dreams but might also appear in daydreams and hypnosis. Your visions might not be repressed memories at all but rather hallucinations.
Diagnosis over the Internet is impossible. It is possible that your two doctors are correct and what you are experiencing are the symptoms of an untreated medical condition. Your next step should be undergoing a thorough medical evaluation. It could help to determine what is wrong and pinpoint the origin of your symptoms. Please take care.
