Hit the bench again and I think ya'll were right that my wrist was the problem. It wasn't an obvious amount, but I ever so slightly straightened my wrist to the point I thought the bar might slip out of my hands and the weight directed more into the flesh of my palm.
Another thing I did was make sure I displaced the weight evenly across my palms. My elbows go slightly outside my hand grip going down, and going up I have a tendency to apply pressure to the outside of my hands because of that. Now I concentrate on pushing the weight through the entire width of my palms. How much it helps I don't know, but it can't hurt.
So now I'm benching with no sharp pain in my hands. Thanks, everybody, for the help!
