Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I suggest you not to worry much. You got electrocuted some days ago and you have this electrocution and numb feeling in index finger for a week or so. Electrocution sometimes damages some nerves because they suddenly are made to carry heavy electricity. It is possible that the damage is permanent. Sometimes after a week or so the feeling should die down.

anyhow do visit a physician who can give you proper advice after having you checked up.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
