Hi and welcome to our community! The problem with Crohn's and Colitis is that you can never predict when a person is going to have a flare up. Some people go into flare when they eat a specific food, some don't have to do anything. Crohn's and UC rears it's ugly head when ever it darn well pleases. Hope you find the answers you are seeking. Take good care,
Love Goes There, Jeaneau

There does seem to be some proof that flares are quite common in the Spring and Fall, due to change in the weather. I did find when my UC was quite active, that it was much worse in the Spring. So, that thinking could be correct. But it really depends a lot on the individual, how advanced the Crohns and/or UC is, diet, etc. etc. etc...so many variables, and everyone is different.

Mags is right, everyone is very different when it comes to Crohns and UC. I get a flare up probably every 6 mo or so. But they are nothing like they used to be before I got on Remicade.
