4 weeks of on/off diarrhoea (no sickness) - have I got IBS or stomach ulcer?

I went out to a restaurant 4 weeks ago and had violent diarrhoea that night. Since then I have had on/off diarrhoea with bloating and wind and an occasional slight nagging pain in the top of my abdomen. I am currently waiting for results to come back from hospital from stool samples. I just wondered if anyone had had experience of this and what the diagnosis was. I am worried about IBS or stomach ulcer.

Oh and I had just finished a course of antibiotics for a chest infection. Am wondering if that caused it rather than the restaurant meal.
