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.

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.
