    sudden shock of mind

    For example: His words suddenly shocked me. But I believe there are better ways. Moreover, I am looking for an expression that expresses "sudden violent shock". Looking for a word or a standard expression.

    I'm sorry for the off-topic question, but is the second word used?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    It's common enough. There are nearly 400 citations in the COCA.
