Can being in severe pain cause sugar glucose levels to rise to higher than normal levels?

My husband was in pain from a nail stabbing him in the foot a couple of weeks ago. His sugar was checked and found it to be unusually high at 402. He is a type 2 diabetic and we have never seen his sugar this high before and he had been taking his medicine when he was supposed to. He was given a shot of incillin to bring his sugar back down.
