HI
Well come to HCM
Because of the electric current ran through the body and caused big jolt and this could cause muscular spasm, pulled, stiffness some time injury also and this could be kind of thermal injury if the shock is minor one then this is nothing to worry and everything would be fine soon, have some rest drink some water, hope this information helps, take care.
