How do you know if you are having an IBS attack or having the stomach flu or food poisoning. Last thursday morning I had pain then formed stools then the next 4 times were loose. The past two days Ive been having loose stools. Usually it goes away by the next day but its not. Could this be a flare up?

Usually for me when it is a GI infection there are a few things that tell it apart.GI Infection tends to watery stools every 20-60 minutes continuing into the night. Often I have a fever and may throw up. (usually way more than 4-5 total bathroom trips)Yours sounds more like when I have an IBS flare up.K.
