It could be a form of OCD - although I had this when I was unwell with my schizophrenia ie hearing voices which I had to obey - but yes no one on hear could say it is one thing or another- if its something diagnosable would say mental health professional would obviously assess.

The way you explaining this though ie the tapping etc around it does sound very like how this kind of thing could pan out in an OCD diagnoses....
