Can you tickle yourself without being schizophrenic

I have diagnosed Asperger's Syndrome, but I can tickle myself. I have heard that only people with Schizophrenia are able to tickle themselves. As far as I know, the tickling is the only Schizophrenic trait I have, I have been in counseling, my Asperger's diagnosis was by a well known PhD in the field, and no one has mentioned Schizophrenia as a possibility. Can people on the Autism Spectrum tickle themselves? Maybe because of our different sensory input? Any information would be helpful. I was adopted at birth,and I have no known family history, maternal, or paternal.

Chill. You're not a schizzo. Literally anyone has the ability to tickle their self; someone probably told you otherwise just to mess with you. The only thing qualifying someone to be able to tickle their self is to be ticklish.

Tickling yourself has absolutely nothing to do with schizophrenia. it occasionally happens in schizophrenic but is not felt to be a feature of the disease
