Are the symptoms permanent?
While Crohn's disease is life long, the symptoms may not be continuous. Most people experience unpredictable episodes called
"flares" in which symptoms appear or get worse. The symptoms eventually get better or go away completely ("remission") until the next flare. Most people feel pretty well when the disease is in remission.
