Why isn’t sense of FEEL one of the senses?

In my view, sense of feel is just as important as sense of touch. A while back, I had an MRI which involved injecting something into the area to be looked at. Later that night, I found myself in considerable agony and when I phoned the nurses hot line to get some insight as to what was going on, they asked me to tell them my pain level on a scale of 1 to 10. My question to them was: your scale or mine?? They never did figure out why I was in such pain but were very careful to make sure that I wasn’t having a heart attack.

If you have a high pain threshold (a low sense of feel), then the scale is going to be quite different than those with a high sense of feel (low pain threshold) but nobody seems to take this into consideration.

My sense of feel is quite low – for example, kissing means little to me because I get very little sensation from it. In fact, I don’t think I have an erogenous zone anywhere 🙂
