I went into remission for 4 years after being diagnosed. I had flares a handful of times that would last a day or two during that time but for the most part, I was back to "normal".
I took (and still take) Colazal.
Just recently I've been sick again so I'm out of my remission for now.
Diagnosed in October, 2003 at age 31.
Currently taking Colazal, Nexium, One-A-Day multivitamin
Secondary conditions: mouth ulcers, joint pain, extreme fatigue
