Can sugar send me hyper?

I've got a bad cold and have been dosing myself up on a lemon and honey concoction with paracetamol. I drank some before I went to bed last night and I couldn't sleep. I felt hyped up and couldn't settle myself or stop my thoughts racing. It was 5 before I dosed off. I feel like death warmed up !
I've had this before with colds whereby I can't sleep, and I've realised that I'm drinking sugary lemon drinks then.

I once had a high glucose reading in a blood test.

Caffeine in the paracetamol?

Mmm I'd not thought of that - is there caffeine in all brands of paracetamol?
