In brief: Numbing

Local anesthetic entails the injection of a medication like lidocaine/xylocaine/bupivicaine into an area to numb it in preparation for a procedure.
It should not have any other effects if used correctly. Some people who get some injected into their blood will describe a metallic taste in their mouth or ringing in their ears.
