Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia usually takes a few minutes. The hypoglycemia is caused by a reaction of Insulin spike to glucose load. Try protein with sugar or a fat, this should help if hypoglycemia is the problem. If the problem is truly happening seconds after eating it may be more of an allery to what you are eating with the sugar, or some type of digestive reaction.
