Thanks for your query. Neorontin is gabapentin possibly started in your case for possible peripheral neuropathy that manifests with the electric sensation. If the pain has not improved, considering chronic shoulder pain and your age, i would suggest a x-ray of your shoulder joints. Degenerative arthritis is a possibility in the case. Sometimes bone spurs associated with arthritis can also manifest with symptoms like peripheral neuropathy (electric sensation). Do clarify any other query you may want to.
