Things that work for her include weighted blankets, riding her bike really fast, & strong hugs from a couple of people. She's recently been having epileptic seizures, so the bike riding is out for now 'til the seizures are under control. She's tried some other things, but few things give her the same intensity as cutting.

She sounds like she's overstimulated. The things you say work for her work for my autistic daughter. Pressure is good. Deep massage, back scratching, squeezing the palms of her hands with your finger and thumb.

Yes, she's probably on the spectrum. But she's not a child & pinching isn't enough. Maybe you'll find some ideas here, too, for when your daughter gets older?
I'm also on the spectrum. I hope you enjoy your daughter. :^)
