If you're waiting...: for encouragement to see a doctor about this, here it is. "Horrible pain" of any cause is a reason to get medical attention. Severe pain in joints can have many causes, including rheumatoid and other serious arthritic problems. Shooting, electric like pain can be caused by pressure on nerves. Please see a doctor!
