Can constant pain effect my sugar levels? I have frozen shoulder from tendinitis and have been in constant pain for a few months. Pain wakes me up 2 or 3 times a night. I went to the regular dr and she gave me muscle relaxer which didn't do much but make me dizzy. No insurance yet but will be getting a cortisone shot as soon as I have insurance.
My numbers have been very high in the fasting morning, 210 on average this week. I'm taking 500mg metformin and 10mg glipizide twice a day. That's up from 5mg glipizde once a day. Don't know what to do and don't look forward to having to take insulin on top of all this. Does anyone else have untreated pain that is causing high levels? Is pain induced stress the cause?
