    Something has caused your ibs to flare. A virus you'd know about. I've just had one and it's taken me a whole week to recover, because of my ibs. I end up with the runs, temperature, SHARP pains at the top of my stomach, headache and feeling drained. A flare up should ease quickly a virus won't.

    Have you been diagnosed with IBS? If you have, you may have had a flare up. Try eating little but often.  Sometimes with IBS, you can get reactions if you overload your stomach.  You may also have had a reaction to dairy.

    lasagna - meat, Bacteria or bug central if it was not prepared correctly or even packed correctly at the supermarket, left out TOOOOO LONG and the bacteria was allowed to breed. not that I want to suggest all meat is a risk, but I have seen meat at the supermarket that Ii have picked up, with packing date that is really suspicious or too old to be safe, I make a point of returning it to the manager at the front desk and I make a fuss about it, as well, much to my husband embrasement and annoyance, but i consider I am protecting the little old lady or person with impared sight.  Be very careful of packed meat.

    Other than that too much food all at once, too much fat and sugar in one serving for your poor tum.

    IBS is just a cluster of symptoms it's not a diagnosis of its self there is always a reason behind the IBS. Look it up, doctor only diagnose IBS bc your symptoms are not serious and most times can be healed by changing your diet and exercise. Well at least what my doctor told me at my last check up.
