I'm new to this and am currently on my second flare up. How often do you experience flare ups and how long do they generally last? Can you eat fairly normally in between flares? Have your symptoms got worse over time? I know some people will say not to worry about it til it happens, but I'd rather know what may happen, even though I appreciate everyone's different. I'm currently not on any meds and am awaiting 2nd gastro app in Feb to find out next steps. Symptoms are fairly mild compared to a lot of what I've read on here. Tia!
