Abstract

Flashbacks in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are commonly experienced as visual, auditory, olfactory or tactile re-livings of a previously experienced traumatic event. We present the case report of one survivor of the July 7th 2005 London underground bombings who was diagnosed with PTSD and who experienced painful flashbacks. We present retrospective multidimensional measures of his pain using standardised instruments. The case provides further evidence that somatosensory re-experiencing of pain memories is possible. Findings are discussed with regards to memory for pain. (c) 2007 International Association for the Study of Pain. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
