Injuries and Blood Sugars

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving! Yesterday I hurt my thumb badly in a football game around 10am. Later that day and night, I could not get my blood sugars below 300. I thought maybe it was a bad site, so I did shots for my meals and corrections, but that still did not seem to do the trick. When I got home around 8pm, I did a new site and a 6 unit correction via injection again. By that time I had over 14 units in just corrections and was still over 300! I was thinking maybe the adrenaline and stress from being in so much pain could have made me insulin resistant but wow! That was definitely a first for me. Has anyone ever had a similar experience?
