I believe I am in remission, but that doesn't mean I don't have diarrhea sometimes, or noises from my stomach. I just don't have pain in my stomach anymore or nausea which was a big problem for me. Sometimes I have diarrhea but nothing I cannot control, it's about once every other week. If I am having a bad day, I also get grumbling in my intestines and soft stools, but if I watch my diet for 1-2 days, everything is back to normal. When I'm having a bad flare, my stomach hurts and I hear really loud noises (like when you flush a toilet!), and of course my visits to the bathroom are approx. 8-10 times with mucus. I never experienced fever or joint pain with my Crohns, but I get this awful feeling like I'm having a really bad stomach flu.
I'm on Entocort and Pentasa, and I don't want at this point to take 6mp, although my doctor says it's my next step, because at this point, my life is very normal, I can do whatever I want, work full time etc, despite some short periods of not feeling good.
So, try not to worry too much. If you feel it's something you cannot control, talk to your doctor.
Have a wonderful day,
