I usually mess with my fixed gears myself but on my road bike I had a proper fitting and it is not BS. I was totally skeptical but the guy I worked with was no joke and I love how my road bike fits. Made a big difference.

I sometimes do bike tours on rented bikes in various places and I'm always happy to get back on my own bike. The bikes I rent are nice, sometimes significantly nicer than my bike, but the fit is always approximate even if I bring my measurements off my bike at home. It does make a difference.

Regarding the OP. I've had problems with palm pressure before and a lot of times it's from being not stretched out enough. If you're too upright, your core works more and inevitably tires and you end up supporting yourself with your hands.
