I have not had any sugar in the year since my surgery. I am seriously afraid I will dump and I'm seriously afraid that I won't. I imagine a lot of you feel or felt the same way at some point.
On the menu thread and other places I see people posting about sugary foods they have. No judgement here, I'm really just curious! For those who have had sugar - at what point did you decide to try it? Why and what happened? Do you regret it?

I have not had a lot of sugar. I am afraid!! Last week at work, I had 2 bites of a cranberry bliss bar. I am a cook and we made a knockoff Starbucks recipe. After about 5 minutes, I had a weird dizzy sensation and I felt really hot. I felt like I was going to pass out. I felt like i couldn't talk or function. It lasted about 10 minutes. It was scary and I plan on never doing that again!! I also ate a beef stick hoping to try and counteract the sugar.
Rh does not happen in 5 min. Maybe in 30min - the earliest? typical is 1-2 hour after ingesting items with too much sugar- carbs. Even proteins can trigger RH.

I think your reaction is happening too quickly to be RH.

I have the same experience with sugar. I avoid it and don't miss it at all.
