Well, I just received electric shock a while back when I was removing my switch board of my house to check something. I got a quick vibration in my hand which lasted for almost 5 seconds. I even have the effect of that vibration till now. But thankfully no damage done to me. Have you experienced the electric shock? And how many times you received electric shock in your life?

yep several times I got little shocks from sticking hair pins in the wall sockets when I was a little kid. I got shocked also when I plugged in a radio during an electric storm. That was a long shock. I couldn't let go of the chord. I was shaking for a couple days after that. And then I use to always get shocked in the photolab I worked at, when I would remove the film from the disposable cameras, the screw driver would slip, and contact the battery terminals, and zap me.

Thank god u r fine. Yes,I have also experienced it a couple of times. And my first shock was when I was a 8 year kid,I still remember. It was raining and our rental houses's walls were all wet. I had my lunch went and switched on my TV. I felt a very bad shock. I realised and took it before it was really late. I was really scared that day!!

One time i was removing a plug from a plug in and it shocked me. Was a weird feeling. it didnt really hurt just kind of a vibration like you said. But it did scare me. Im glad you didnt get more of a shock . Gotta be careful around electrical items.
