In brief: Highly unlikely

Meds injected in a nerve block tend to stay right there and not create problems all over the body.

In brief: No

A typical nerve block will not trigger other other pain syndromes.
When done by a qualified physician, nerve blocks are generally safe and a useful option.

Unclear what was indication for nerve block, but an underlying autoimmune disease needs to be evaluated.
