In brief: Not likely

Although rupture cysts can cause temporary pain and discomfort, the "nerve damage" they might cause would be minor and should resolve spontaneously within in a short period of time.
If you develop persistent pain after what you think was a ruptured ganglion cyst, see your pray care physician or specialist for an evaluation.
