If you have had a lumbar puncture / spinal tap what were your side effects. If you had any are they really as bad as people say?

I am scheduled to have a lumbar puncture on Monday due to the fact that I have intercranial pressure. I am not that scared of the actual procedure but more concern with the side effects.
