Shock through phone, arm numbness, ear pain, pressure. Treatment?

Two days ago I was on the phone at work during a storm. I got shocked through the phone. My arm felt like it was asleep for about 45 mins and I have had a sharp ear pain and ear pressure since. It feels like the pain after your ears pop, but does not go away. Should I be concerned or will it just go away in a few days?

Hi and thanks for the query,
Your ear may also have suffered injury.
It is possible that your drum is injured.
Do not worry ear drums heal well.
See an ENT specialist to know the exact nature of injuries.
Till then do not let water to enter your ears and do not probe or try to clean your ears.
If there is pain you can take any over the counter pain killer.
