In brief: Talk with MD

You should contact your anesthesiologist.
In mist instances this will resolve on its own. In other circumstances it may require more agressive treatment.

In brief: Blood patch

Usially bed rest and tylenol/caffeine would be appropriate and can help within several day.
If it didn't work, an injection of your own blood into epidural space (blood patch) should be done.
