Even though that your contact with 220V of AC was brief, it was enough to produce some temporary injury of the nerves t that supply that part of your hand, meaning the ulnar nerve, that’s why you are feeling numbness and burning sensation all the way through the elbow. I recommend that you keep taking Complex B tablets to help the recovery of the affected nerve, it will take some time but it will pass.
