It is common for some people coming off benzos to have vivid memories.  I also had this happen to me.  Memories from my childhood that I had not thought of in decades suddenly popped int my head as clear as if they happened yesterday.  One good thing came out of it.  One day I suddenly remembered my password to my ebay account which I couldn't remember for the life of me for the last 6 years!  It was weird.  When I remembered it it was so clear, as if I had used it to log onto ebay only yesterday.

This happened to me a lot in April.  It was during an intense period of my withdrawal.  I just started using the air conditioner again because of the heat and the atmosphere in my room. I was flooded with memories of being in our air conditioned house during the summer as a very young kid.  That alone didn't bother me but I was also experiencing fear too which confused me because I didn't really have any bad memories of my summers growing up but I felt fearful as those feelings came rushing in. It wasn't just that I remembered those summers, but it felt like I was literally living them again.  I was pacing around questioning why it felt like I was going through a time warp and why I was so scared .

 

For me, I think it is the fear of losing control.  Withdrawal symptoms, whether physically intense or benignly mental, seem to take that sense of control away from us.  That is why even if we are flooded with pleasant memories it can be quite unnerving.  When my memories of my childhood summers came rushing back my benzo brain was telling me that I experienced horrible summers filled with the same fear I had now.  I know that not to be true, but I couldn't do much to stop it.  Memory flooding is just another strange symptom that will pass with time.
