A member asked:

I have an electric shock feeling running down my funny bone to my pinky only when i shrug my shoulders. sometimes, i get this sensation in my right arm. i injured my left shoulder lifting weights nearly a year ago, i'm pain free since. any concern?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Nerve impingement: Impingement or entrapment of the ulnar nerve can cause the feeling of electric shock radiating down ones arm from the elbow to the pink and ring fingers. The ulnar nerve starts need the shoulder joint so it is possible that traumatic injury to the shoulder can affect the ulnar nerve. An orthopedist can evaluate for ulnar nerve injury and treat this condition by nonsurgical or surgical therapy.
