Wrist numb

For two days I've had a tingling sensation in my wrist. Thanks to the internet and paranoia, I've come to the conclusion that I've either just suffered a small injury or have developed diabetes. The tingling only occurs in my left wrist and the veins along it appear to have either moved or have become engorged.

I do drink a lot of energy drinks and eat a lot of sugar, but I also got a punching bag last week which I've been punching sans gloves.
I've had no tingling anywhere else and it hasn't happened before. My hope is that it's just mild swelling pressing on a nerve.

Please tell me I'm being paranoid and how long I should wait for the tingling to pass before consulting a doctor.
