Pain in arm after electric shock

Hi,

I had an electric shock from a standard plug about 2 -3 months ago but since then I have been getting shooting pains in my hand (same hand) like the electric shock is still there and my entire arm has a dull ache and electric feelings. This is not constant and the feelings are on and off. Have I damaged my nerves? Do you think this will heal with time?

Hi,
There could have been nerve damage in the arm due to the electric shock. Please try taking pain killer like Tab. Tylenol. It may help reduce the pain. It cannot be predicted how long the pain may last in case of a nerve damage. The nerve may regenerate slowly and pain may subside. Please consult a neurologist for further advice on management of the symptoms. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
