Default Trouble Code - Multiple Cylinder Misfire

I started my 2000 Miata (85,000 miles) & it ran terrible (felt like it was running on 3 cylinders). I turned the car off....then started it again, and it ran fine. I then noticed the "check engine" light was on. Using my code reader, the computer stored a "multiple cylinder misfire" code. Anybody have any ideas what caused this???
