Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, the electric shock is kind of thermal injury and severity of this is depends upon the current if this is Alternate current and the voltage is high then the injury would be severe that burns the skin and disturb the circulation, but here from the history I could guess that the shock must be very low in intensity no need to worry about this it would come around without the treatment, take care and have a nice day.
