Yes it is advisable that your condition is monitored.

Answered by Dave, Electrical Safety Expert

It is still advisable to monitor the condition of the person who received the shock, as the effects of an electric shock may not be immediately obvious. In worst case conditions, an electric shock may lead to a condition known as electroporation, where cells within the body rupture, leading to tissue death. Additional problems might include deep-seated burns, muscle damage and broken bones.
