Unrelated: None of what you are describing is a symptom of schizophrenia. Sounds more like a personality type or possibly anxiety. If it is new, you may want to review what has changed in your life. If it's causing you problems, then by all means see a mental health professional to help you figure out what is causing so much tension in your life and how to deal with it.

Arthritis: (osteo) typically occurs in this joint and it doesn't have to hurt. I wouldn't take or do anything about it, but don't aggravate it by tapping.
