Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
this is common effect of such preocedures and this shouldnt worry you. There was neural irritation due to needle pressure or contrast injection. YOu may feel pressure and headache several days after it but it should subside in short time.
Wish you good health. Regards
