so currently if I do to much physically I feel absolutely awful not the next day but the day after ,, I struggle very much to feel myself it's as if I am outside my head looking in and just can not ground myself ,, it is a horrible feeling and lowers my mood and makes me more irritable,, these feelings will last for a few days ,,, physically however I feel fine and could for example play indoor football for an hour if needs be it is just the derogatory mental effects that is ruining my happiness ,,, I was wondering if my experiences are symptomatic of Cfs as Hcp s seem to to be ill educated on this therapeutic area,,, I have had every test under the sun and nothing seems to show up. Previous medical history includes sarcoidosis / hypertension

Venla, I am sorry for your struggles.
My flares vary from time of ANY activity. Sometimes it is within hours, sometimes it takes a couple days and it leaves me wondering what I did!
In my journey I've learned that each of us manifests our symptoms and reactions just as uniquely as we ourselves are. Our symptoms may all be similar, but how they hit us is how they hit us.
if as you say in your comments you 'feel physically fine' I doubt very much you have M.E./C.F.S. as both affects you physically.
If you do too much physically but then suffer no severe physical effects after then it is unlikely to be ME. Mental fatigue is a symptom of ME though although I think most would say you really need to have the PEM effect.
When people ( going by the 10 years 5 days a week therapy I had for the same thing) bury their feelings which makes for alienation which you are discribing, it usually means you have buried things you dont want to acknowledge or face, could be anything just untenable to you. in group therapy against much resistence on my part they drew me out and I have hardly ever had your experience since, and I would recommend group therapy for you therefore.
