I have a question about flare ups, how long do they normally last if they have a set limit?

I've had flares that lasted from about 4 weeks to 2 months. It all depends on how soon I get to the doctor and what he does about it.
Diagnosed with Crohn's in 1995.
Have used Prednisone, Flagyl, and Pentasa in the past.
Now on Imuran/Prednisone - waiting to start Humira.
One stricture in distal ileum.
No surgeries yet.

Hi, I went all most a year and then last may I started a flare that I am still and this go around I have lost 60 pounds to it. But it depends on the person I do know that.

There is no set limit. A flare is just another name for having symptoms of active disease. If you don't or can't get it under control it can last for years. If you're able to get it under control it will last until your medications kick in.
