Neurologist 's  Response
Hi. Shock like sensation from neck to arm should definitely be not ignored. It may mean that your nerves are getting compressed in and around the bones of your neck. Head injury that you had may be responsible for your problem. I would suggest you to see a neurophysician or a neurosurgeon soon and sort out the problem. Avoid excessive neck movements, head jerks and weight lifting over head till then. Good luck.
