    does being in pain raise blood glucose numbers?

    I was wondering about if pain actually raises BG numbers? I had some spinal injections two days ago and in total I has ten. I have a failed spinal fusion. Well I've noticed after the shots my BG levels have been through the roof! I'm having to use my insulin 3xs a day as opposed to once a day (sliding scale). I've been in a tremendous amount of pain from the procedure I've had and wonder can pain make our BG levels rise? I would love to hear your opinions on this! Thank you family! Your all the best!

    I have been in severe pain because of bone on bone knee, my BG has been way too high and I have not changed my diet. I am eating as I had been before and keeping my sugar levels in perfect shape. Since the pain has gotten severe my BG has stayed 250 - over 300. Totally not normal for me. So yes, pain can effect BG.
