Thanks for writing to us.
The feeling of electric shock that you are getting is likely to be related to an electrolyte imbalance in your body. Vitamin B 12 deficiency can also sometimes aggravate such symptoms.
You can start taking appropriate supplements and consult a neurologist if the symptoms persist.
