David Brin has an excellent short story about an anosmiac man, called "Senses Three and Six"-- the title refers to the sense of smell and a six sense he describes as something to do with the inner mind or memory or something, I forget exactly. Like some of his other shorts, the story ties together the real truth behind the conspiracy theories which turned out to be more correct than their supporters could've possibly supposed.

I've also heard of equilibrium as a sixth sense, and one that can be lost with terrible vertigonous effects...

Radio Lab, the best WNYC show ever (among some serious competition), identifies 9 senses: smell touch taste hearing sight, of course, as well as the sense of warmth, the sense of your body's position relative to itself, equilibrium/balance, as you note, and pain sense.
It was mentioned on a show about the discovery of the 5th taste, Umami.

Sense of warmth, huh?
I wonder if too there's some electromagnetic things that list misses out on, though we have those less than, say, birds.
Or where does the sense someone is looking at you come from...
