If you were born deaf and blind and without any sensation in your arms, though able to move them, would you still know that you had two?

Yes. You could grope at them with your head and/or legs.

But how would you know that there wasn't another one just out of reach?

I think I am right in saying that some biologists think that in our brains we have a kinda of map our body and so are aware of regions of it, even if they are removed. However this is no really founded on much proof as far as I know, and I am only aware of through a passing comment and I am not sure if this theory was true how it would apply to a body where one was not aware that you had a certain limb to start with.
