What you describe is neuropathic pain. To be certain about neuropathy you would need an EMG-NCV study.

I do agree that you describe a polyneuropathy. Perhaps it is due to pre-diabetes, but if etiology not apparent, should search for reason. You may have a small fiber neuropathy, and there is a protocol to uncover causation here. I think an experienced neurologist should be able to guide you through process and treat this.
