Wow you have a interesting story, and I have a similar that I have been searching to see if anyone ever received the same as mine. Here's my story. While I was working at a temporary Receptionist job at Textron located at Alliance airport in Fort Worth, Texas, and on 5/30/02 I was on the telephone placing/scheduling a FedEx pickup. I had the phone receiver resting on my left shoulder while I was talking to the FedEx rep and at the same time I was folding a metal clasp on an envelope (all about 3:00pm). And all the sudden I started filling an electrical shock go through my left hand and up my arm. It took a few seconds (maybe about 20-30 seconds) to realize that I was being electrocuted. Then I felt like I blacked out for about 2 seconds then I was dizzy and disoriented and THEN tremendous pain in my hand and arm. Now FedEx has no record on my call and the Secretary I reported to said I lied (how could she possibly know what it's like to be electrocuted). And, now I'm having to prove something that you can't see (electrical waves) but can at any given moment feel from one extreme to another, because electrical waves like magentic waves are "constantly" around you every day...know what I mean???! I'm having to go to a Workers Comp hearing and say what happened to me isn't just a "fluke". Did you receive a red spot like me (mine was on my hand-top side), from your electrical shock, or was yours different? Am I the first person to respond to your posting?
