In brief: Not usually

Am amgiogram should not usually cause any nerve damage.
Since to perform an angiogram, one must access an a rtery there can be temporary discomfort while this is accessed. Rarely, while numbing or accessing the artery, the nerve can injured. This is usually transient and very rarely causes permanent discomfort.

In brief: Angiogram

Usually not. Access to perform the angiogram is usually in the femoral artery in the groin and a nerve the femoral nerve sits next to the artery.
Temporary discomfort can occur during or after an angiogram.
