I was electrocuted in Oct 2011. I have constant pain in my back muscles and arms the level of pain ranges from 7 to 10 at times it like knots in the middle of my back and or my arms are always hurting I got hit with 277 volts and it burned my little finger. My question is will the pain ever go away as long as I take the pain meds I am trying to live a normal life but what once I did in hours sometimes takes a day to like mowing grass simple stuff I been to see 4 different neurologists. .

I was electrocuted in 2012 on the job. I got hit by 460v in my right hand, which started swelling within seconds. It went in my hand and out through my left foot. I went to hospital to get checked out. So far, I've been seen by three different doctors and have surgery done on my right hand in hopes that I will feel good as new again but no luck. Now, I’m stuck with constant pain in my hand and it also feels numb from time to time. I am sometimes not able to hold anything without my hand shaking, which causes me to drop things. .
