Is it normal to experience back pain after minor electrical shock?

Hi! I live in the country and was out seeing to my family s horses yesterday evening. I accidentally touched the electrical fence, pain shot out through the arm and into my shoulder and now I m experiencing back pain. Is this normal for a minor electrical shock? Should I see a doctor? I m 18 years old, female and I m 5 5 and weigh about 140 lbs.

Hi , Welcome to HCM . After
going through your query
I found that this seems to
be muscular pain due to strong
contraction of muscles during
electric shock . Analgesic
(DICLOFENAC) are taken three times a DAY AFTER MEALS to relieve it .
However you can visit a doctor.
