Welcome to HCM,
Your history suggest you had tachycardia possibly SVT(Supra ventricular Tachycardia
) and when heart rate
is fast and irregular DC electric shock is mode of treatment it resets heart to normal sinus rhythm
and we have to look for the cause of such rhythm disturbance.
In some cases there is risk of formation of clots and to prevent that complication oral anticoagulants are given. Then go for Prothrombin test if you are advised.
There can be mild pain due to local injury
which occurs due to electric shock
Please take to avoid excessive tea or coffee and energy drinks and alcohol.
please follow up with cardiologist regularly.
Please take care.
