    I just electrocuted myself... My computer isn't working, so I was poking around inside, the socket was plugged in and on, but the computer was turned off. Touched the power supply, an got a massive shockthat went up one arm an down the other. Aside from being a bit shocked (forgive the terrible pun) I don't feel bad, just a bit of a tingle in my fingers on my right hand. Reckon I should get a doctor?

    [EDIT] all sorted, the few people who have replied so far has been enough to convince my mother :P

    Nope. If you're fine, you're fine.

    Personally, I'm cool with it. I'm asking on behalf of my mother, who I swear would worry if you needed medical advice for walking into a door... Queen of paranoid...

    You're cool. If you don't have any evident burns and your heart is fine you'll be ok.

    Poor thing lol! I did a similar thing (but with an electric fan which was turned on) - I got red blotches and burns but never saw a doc - I'm fine
    But if you don't feel so good then maybe see someone...

    I think if you are, you needn't visit the doc
