The pain that you're describing is CLASSIC for carpal tunnel. Which diabetic
are more prone to than the general population.

And yes, polyneuropathy usually develops in the lower limbs first, but there
is also something called MONOneuropathy that can affect any nerve at any
time. No one really knows why it happens, but it can happen to non-diabetics
as well. Fortunately, it's usually not permanent -- you just have to wait
for it to resolve.
