Electricution with metal?

  1. Jul 17, 2008 #1
    hi, I'm a web developer so i usually stay in front of a computer for almost 12 hrs a day.

    my question is, when i get up from my computer and hold a metal, ex. faucet or a spoon, or even a refrigerator holder i get electrocuted.
    FYI, by the way, i got a surgical implant in my right hand because of a severe breakage of my bone. and the implant stayed in my arms for about 6 or 7 years, but its been removed last year.
    is it connected? I'm just curios because i get electrocuted for 5 up to 10 volts..

    its like I'm being bitten by a big big ant... ?????

    is there any explanation with this?? it all started after the removal of my hand implant.

    Is there any reason why you don't think it's a run-of-the-mill static shock? How is it different?
