Hi there. According to your description, your two-point discrimination sensation is lost. The two point discrimination is of two types, static and dynamic, former used in emergency to determine digital nerve integrity. It is used and recommended for testing loss of sensation or degree in diabetics. Dynamic two-point discrimination is not used routinely. Consult your neurologist immediately for diabetes profiling and checking for blood sugar levels and other causes of sensory neuropathy. Hope this helps. Take care.
