you have pain that feels like electric shock. 1st possibility is lack of vit B12, thats the commonest condition now a days.. 2nd is___ if there any associated numbness, radiating pain, sense of burning etc then visit the doctor as you require cervical spine xray.there may be some chances of spondylitis( nerve compression). if there are no such symptoms then also u need xray as it has progressed to the left arm also.
thank you very much.
have a good health.

Thanks for query,
You might have some pressure on your cervical vertebrae may be due to enlarge lymph node.
At this age cervical spondititis is not there but there is possibility of having extra cervical rib so go for x ray cervical region.
Take vit B1,B6,B12 injections.
Ok and bye.
