hello,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
since you have lost the sensations of cold and hot it appears to be due to spinal cord
problem. it may be due to spinothalamic tract involvement. it can be also thalamic disorder. have you any other associated symptom?
a detail neurological examination is needed for it
its better to consult a nearest neurologist and get evaluated for it
take care
