I feel electricity through my laptop (Omen 15)

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP - 15t-dc000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Omen 15 laptop is metal, and to the left and right of the trackpad (where I rest my wrists when I type) I can feel current being pushed from presumably the motherboard into my wrists or hands. What is odd is that when I brush my hand lightly across this surface, I feel what appears to be an AC current, similar to what you feel when you stick your finger into a wall outlet, albeit much less painful. Still, this is very noticeable and concerning, and can make my wrists ache when typing or using the trackpad. What should I or can I do about this? This doesn't appear to be a well known issue from the research I have done. Thanks.


Update: I only get this feeling when the laptop is plugged in, which would explain the AC current. Maybe the laptop is not grounding properly?
