I am dealing with the results of having diabetes but also a stroke. My affected knee started giving me excrutiating pain. Regular pain meds did nothing for me and the pain would not allow me any rest. The doctor gave me a shot of steroids in mny knee. He told me it could affect my blood sugar levels. He wasn't kidding. Within hours without any carbs my level went up to 179. I injected my insulin but it still went up to 382. It took 2 days to get it back to my regular 110. Steroids helped the pain but I am not sure if it is worth it. Is this normal or has anyone else had this same problem. It really scared me.
