Sensitive: You do, in fact, have arteries in your fingers which produce a pulse ("digital arteries"). When you compress your fingers by touching something with just the right pressure, you partially compress the artery and can feel the pulsation, just like when a BP cuff is deflated and you feel the throb in your arm. This isn't abnormal, but you have one heck of a good sense of touch! Do you play the piano?
