In brief: Positional?
Does the ha come on when you stand or sit but go away when you lay down? If so you may have a post duralumin puncture ha.
Talk to your OB asap.

In brief: Contact anesthesia
It is also important to contact the anesthesia provider directly.
If they do not get the feedback they will think all is ok and do the same the next time. If your vision is changing this is a serious developement. Caffiene can help if this is a spinal headache.

In brief: Blood patch
Spinal head ache responds to an epidural blood patch some 95% time may be repeated and if it does not work subdural blood patch should be condidered before any surgery but prevention is the best - should have used the wiley spinal the wiley is a #23 gauge over the needle canula.
Therefore the spinal leak is less and has the lowest headache after spinals. Educate your doctor!

In brief: See your doctor
There are many causes of headache.
One concern would be a post dural puncture headache, if you had an epidural or spinal. This would be a worse headache when sitting or standing, that goes away when laying down. Usually this resolves within a week, though. If your symptoms are consistent, your doctor may recommend a blood patch. But you need to see your OB and discuss this if it is severe.
