Pain with spaghetti

I have been on a gluten-free diet for a little over two weeks. I have had stomach pain off and on since I was 10 years old and have been diagnosed with IBS. For the last three months I have had to take immodium approximately 3-4x a week and strugged frequently with bloating/diarhea/stomach cramping. Upon starting the gluten-free diet I swung to constipation which is now controlled via medication. My worst trigger food has always been spaghetti, so I purchased gluten-free (brown rice/white rice/quinoa) spaghetti and ate it tonight. I have not had diarhea but I am having gas and bloating. What could be the issue? I had meat sauce. I enjoy tomatoes and had tacos with tomatoes last night (corn tortilla) with no issues. I'm just at a loss. I can also eat some hamburgers most often without issues. I *sometimes* have stomach pain and bloating with burgers or steaks or even spaghetti with alfredo sauce or chicken noodle soup.  Thanks for your help! (I have had upper and lower GIs and colonoscopies in the past.)
