    Hey there,

    My wife has had two iron infusions over the last year or so. Injectafer was the brand name. Back when all this started I looked at so many different things and researched till I was blue in the face.I'm not sure if they are the same drug or same class of drug. I do recall there were basically two types of infusions. One had lots of bad side effects and a newer class maybe, what you both got, not so much.
    Regardless, after the first infusion, she had a headache for about two weeks. Eventually, the headache went away and she felt better than before the infusion.
    I'm just a husband, not a Dr.. I think a lasting headache is one of the adverse effects. Was for my wife anyway. Oh, the second infusion she never got a headache or a backache, but did kind of have a reaction during the infusion. Just kind of nauseous, light headed. Nothing serious though.
    Good luck
