In brief: Maybe PTSD

I am sorry to hear of your trauma.
While it is possible to think of flashbacks after trauma as one of the consequences that can be expected, i wouldn't consider them 'normal'. Just as concussion symptoms after a car accident may be expected, but are not normal. You may have post traumatic stress disorder. To learn more about it visit istss.Org and consider getting a psychiatric evaluation.
