Hi. I was diagnosed with Crohn's in January '09 after a blockage and resection in my small intestines. My stomach always hurts if I press on it at all. Often it hurts without touching it. Almost always will hurt some after eatting. Some days are dreadful with D and pain. To be considered "in remission" would it be when I have no pain at all or just not in the bathroom a million (feels like that many!) times a day? I'm just curious. I just went through a month where I had to spend many hours running to the bathroom often, so I guess that is a flare up. I am just trying to figure out all the terminology before I go back to see the doctor in a week. I have company coming for lunch in a few hours and sure wish I had some energy! Thanks! Diane
