Non-stop secretion from nose and sneezing after the novocaine shot for tooth removal. Is this normal?

Two days ago I had my top wisdom tooth removed. During the novocaine shot on my palate it felt as if the medicine went through my nose. It felt like cold water and wasn't hurtful just odd. The surgery went fine. As I was driving home I could not stop sneezing and had non stop clear snot coming from my nose. Until this day when I breathe in through my nose it burns/tingles and makes me sneeze. Sort of feels like its dry but I have plenty of clear snot still too. Was it the shot? The extraction? Will it go away? I can breathe out fine.
