In brief: No and maybe

As far as the neuralgia goes, it is unlikely you will "inherit" a tendency to get that specifically.
Some diseases can have neuralgias (shingles, diabetes, etc), so be aware of any risks for them. Clotting disorders, however, are often inherited, and some may not manifest right away. If his clotting problems are not due to meds, then you should talk witha physician to fully assess your risk.
