Hi all,Annoyingly I have come down with a cold, sore throat, feel tired, lathargic etc...But today my tummy seems to have taken a turn for the worse - 2 trips already at work and only been here 1hr 20 mins.. Tummy just feels 'off', a little sickly almost..Annoying as I am due away this weekend with friends.Anyone else ever had a cold kick things off and make them feel rubbish on 2 counts?Sleepy zzzzzzzzzI

I had this recently and felt so awful I went to a clinic and was prescribed Zithromax antibiotic. It cleared away the flu instantly, but left me in a horrible mess of diarrhea. Can't win.

Any other illness (even a cold) causes physical stress and that can set off the IBS.If a cold is bad enough to make you feel tired, or upset your sleep a bit or make you achy it is more than enough to set off the IBS.
