    Hi, my MacBook Pro is sending shockwaves through my wrists if I put my wrists down on the edge. What should I do?

    When I had mine, that told me that it needed to be cleaned, but that might not be your case. Try using the three pronged adapter, and if it continues, I wouldn't worry about it unless it really bothers you.

    Nah. I've got Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and it's quite distinct because you can feel the pressure about two inches up from where your wrist joins your arm and there's other stuff I won't bore you with.

    This sounds actually dodgy and you should take it to a "Genius" bar and get it checked out. Or check the recall for the power adapters.

    Do you get it when your MBP is connected to mains or not?

    If when connected sounds like a loose wire in the Charger
    If when not connected, maybe something your wearing is building static?

    If all the time though, i'd get it checked out...

    I'll get it checked out immediately, it is really bothering me and causing my arm to numb.
