    Why don't you give the Check a Symptom box that's found in the upper left hand side of the webpage a try? While the Check a Symptom guide is very complete, it can't diagnose your problem but it may be able to give you questions you might want to ask your physician. 

    Off hand, I can tell you that your symptoms sound a bit like neuropathy, a type of nerve pain that is often associated with diabetes and several other conditions. It might be something to talk to your doctor about when you see him/her.  

    Here are some links about this condition and others about chronic pain that you might find of use in the meantime:
