Real flares? Yup. I can't get them under control myself. If I'm just having a bad week, I wait it out to see what it's going to do. Also depends on how bad my symptoms are, and what they are (I start having swelling and other symptoms elsewhere, I'm going in!). So really it just depends.
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Just finished tapering off Prednisone *YEAH*, Asacol, Questran, Toprol XL (for high blood pressure).
