Not unusual: It is not unusual to "not feel right" after an illness has presumably cleared up. If this feeling continues or worsens, see your doctor as something else may be going on. For intestinal issues, try to maintain a bland diet during the recovery, avoiding spicy foods, fried foods, etc.

P/infectious IBS: If you’ve battled a gastrointestinal (GI) infection before, you know it’s not pleasant. But typically symptoms don’t last longer than few days.Some patients just can’t seem to get back to a normal GI rhythm or bowel function.The symptoms of post-infectious IBS develop after an infectious GI bug such as viral gastroenteritis or a bacterial infection like E. coli or Salmonella or even C. difficile.
