Need Help resolving a "Cyclical server-side forwards detected" error

I'm trying to take a VF page I've created and which the user is currently viewing, convert it to a pdf on an actionbutton click and save it to an Object record, but everything I try returns the error I referenced in the subject of this thread.
My current method is this:
public pageReference savePdf(){
    		System.Pagereference currentPage = ApexPages.currentPage();
    		Attachment attach = new Attachment();
    		Blob body = currentPage.getContentAsPDF();
        	attach.Body = body;
        	attach.Name = 'RemitRegister.pdf';
        	attach.ParentId = 'a0319000000ppIf';
        	insert attach;
    		PageReference newPg = new PageReference('/apex/CM_MonthlyRemittance');
			newPg.setRedirect(true);
    		return newPg;
    		}
From what I've seen in similar instances when people have come across this it's generally caused when you try and return the same page which is currently being displayed.  However, even with any number of means of trying to redirect or return a different page this still occurs for me and is getting quite frustrating as this is the only nagging issue which is preventing the larger project from being completed.  Any help would be appreciated.

Conversely, I also have another method which executes onload of the page in question and, if I encapsulate my attach method in this, I don't get the error and the attachments all go where they're supposed to be.  However, the attached files are blank of all pertinent data, so if anyone can figure out how to get either of these methods working as intended that would help me greatly.  The second method is:
public pageReference searchPend2(){
    	List<ID> batchList = new List<ID>();
        
        tContractList = new List<ContractWrapper>();
        twcContractList = new List<ContractWrapper>();

Though I fear the problem here lies in all the lists I need to maintain and pull data from to populate the various tables in the intended PDF, because they're not being preserved when the page is finished completing the action.
As I said, any suggestion/solution would be great so I can hopefully finish this.
