I was electrocuted at work in June. I had a cable running under my desk which had become open. It wrapped around my leg. The sensation is almost indescribable. I can't remember anything then, until lying on the floor with my heart beating randomly and loud, then stopping. I thought I was going to die. My colleague called an ambulance. They said I was having a heart attack and took me to the hospital. I spent the day in hospital on an ECG but all settled down. I still have a tingling sensation in my leg and arm. I struggle to write with a pen. My heart still seems to flutter. I relive the moment and the sensation all the time, especially at night. It stops me sleeping and the lack of sleep is really getting me down and depressed.
