Xiph- What you just described blows my mind... I had the *EXACT* same problem when I was young. Hypersensitivity to sugar, strange allergy-like reactions to a specific food coloring (I remember it being Red somthing). Born in 1980 to a mother who had an *interesting* past, my doctors (myself included) thought my condition was an anomoly. Ultimately, the sugar and coloring reactions went away, but it took years... years of childhood memories devoid of sugar on my cheerios, candy, ice-cream, etc. Wow.
