A nerve may have been nicked creating discomfort. It may last weeks or several months. Ice might reduce the discomfort.

This is being caused by something else.

You don't say where the local anesthesia was administered. If it was for a digital block of the toe, then i imagine it would be possible to injure a nerve during the injection. Otherwise no.

The injection itself burns but most get no long lasting pain unless a nerve was damaged but chances of this are very low.
