Strange sensation on the finger post receiving electric shock, radiations from arm to the elbow. Healing time?

Hi I received an electric shock to my right index finger yesterday morning from my fan; I was attaching it to an adapter directly to the mains. My finger was throbbing yesterday but seemed better today, however it still has a strange sensation. However after a session at the gym tonight, I am experiencing sensations up my right arm to the elbow . What should I expect in terms of haeling time please?

Thanks for writing to us.
The strange sensations that you are having are due to nerve injury due to the electric shock. This will gradually heal in few weeks on its own.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
