Wife, mother with MS in neurophysiology

Poor Tactile Perception And Discrimination:

My husband of more than 20 years has a set of touch issues that I have tried to understand for years. We have switch plates all over the house that are broken because he screwed them in too hard. I frequently tell him he his intimate touching is hurting me. He will tell me that he cant feel me when I touch his skin ie: back rub. Today he couldn't get his ipod to work correctly. My 20 year old son and I just stare at each other. It was so obvious that he was pushing too hard on the "touch" pad. I don't know if there is anything out there to help him but it helps to have a title to give it when I talk to a doctor.
