Can a anesthetic injected into my nerves cause mood swings?

Hi I have anaesthetic injected into my nerves regularly I have noticed that I seem so struggle with my mood after these procedures. I am normally a very level person mood wise, but seem pretty low after the anaesthetic. Can anaesthetic injected into you do this. as I can recall always been tearful a few days after surgaries, that is what made me think of the possible connection. Thanks

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern you have not clearly mentioned that for what purpose you have to go for anesthetic effect, because this is not the routine procedure neither this is being used as therapeutic purpose anesthetic agents purely used for surgical and investigative purpose only if you are practicing this beyond the limit then this is dangerous and not advisable, take care and have a nice day.
