Unlikely!: Novocaine, which is a type of local anesthesia injected to numb an area, wears off relatively quickly within an hour or two. It is absorbed into the body and metabolized. Once the numbing effect is gone, there are no other side effects.

Possibly: It depends on what you are asking. The normal side effects are numbness, loss of sensation in the area of injection. Depending on the type and what vasoconstrictor was used there could be other side effects.
