Can a spinal headache cause long term problems? Didn't get blood patch but went away on its own by laying down flat for a week after csection.

In brief: no

The spinal fluid leak from the puncture of the dura matter has healed.
You should have no long term problems.

In brief: Probably not

The quick answer is no, a post-spinal headache does not cause long term problems or consequences.
