I never considered feeling achy or very fatigued to be remission. Granted, i don't go so far as to define remission as 100%l normalcy- for starters, I had mild IBSish symptoms on and off a bit before I was ever dx's with IBD- but anything beyond some mild IBS, including any outright pain, I consider non-remission.
