A flare would be when you have UC symptoms.
Remission would be when you have NO (or managable) symptoms.

So, bleeding, urgency, frequency, cramping, etc all point to flares.

I just wanted to add on here - there is NO such thing as a dumb question. If you don't ask, you can't learn right? And I second the welcome to Healingwell :)
