Is it possible?

Is it possible to get dumping syndrome for the first time at 5 1/2 months out from surgery?! Something weird is happening to me... I used to be able to eat a couple of miniature candy bars and not have any problems, but lately - things are changing. I'm starting to notice a major shift, and I think it's even happening with foods that I wouldn't think that it would.

I just ate a small snack I bought downstairs - it was nuts with rasins & a few M&M's mixed together... I took out the rasins because I won't eat those things... and that left me with a mix of peanuts, cashews, almonds, and 5 M&M's (literally)... and I'm sitting here sweating and felling like I just drank a pitcher of margaritas!

Really - it's bad - I'm very loopy right now, and I've had this happen a few times over the last few weeks... I'll sort of contiously blackout (sounds weird, but it's true) where I can function... like driving and all of those things aren't truly affected... well I guess they are, but whatever. It's sort of like I'm majorly zoning out - and then I'll snap to and sort of have to figure out where I am again. Strange, right?

So I've now noticed this twice today... once on the above mentioned snack, and this morning when I had my South Beach protein bar... is this dumping syndrome from to much sugar, or something else happening with my freaky body?
