Might be but that is an unusual symptom. Get your eyes examined by an optometrist or ophthalmologist

I have never had a patient complain of palinopsia.  As far as I can determine there is no treatment for it and the primary thing is to determine if there is some disease in the neurological system causing it. It is not due to primary eye disease.   Palinopsia must me distinguished from entopic phemonema or after-images which are normal.

If it worsens or other symptoms develop you should try and see a neuro-ophthalmologist.
