Aphantasia and schizophrenia


What explains it when one has always had aphantasia and then gets schizophrenia and then voices in your head accuse you of doing something wrong in the past and then an image appears in your head of what you supposedly did almost like being in an interrogation room?

I actually grew up just like this. I’m diagnosed schizoaffective. The interrogation room idea is something I’m highly familiar with. I am not, personally, aware of a word that relates the two. Since aphantasia and hyperphantasia are not technically considered disorders or impairments, I feel that they are not considered as factors to conditions that are.
