In brief: 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.

In brief: Rarely

Novocain (procaine) is a local anesthetic that is injected into an area to numb it, for example, to have dental work done.
Side effects and allergic reactions are extremely rare. Sometimes novocain (procaine) or other local anesthetics are combined with Epinephrine (adrenalin) to reduce bleeding. The Epinephrine may cause a rapid heart rate or panicky feeling, which is more common than a reaction to novocain (procaine) itself.

In brief: Yes, but not often

Just like any medication, novacaine has certain side effects.
These could be systemic or localized, allergic or toxical. Nervous system side effects are nervousness, dizziness, blurred vision, tremors. Cardiovescular side effects are depression of the myocardium, hypotension (or sometimes hypertension), bradycardia, and even cardiac arrest. Allergical side effects are edema and urticaria.
