post spinal headache after caesarean
Hi, I had a caeserian section about a week ago. The headaches started slightly after the operation. It is getting worse after a week It begins in the neck and gradually move to the head.
Could this be for sure symptoms of the spinal as I never experience headaches in the past. How long will this prolong?.
I hope there is any suggestions for treatment

This does sound like it could be related to the spinal. It may last quite a while without treatment. I would sggest that you arrange to see the anaesthetist who did the spinal anaesthetic. It may be necessary to do a blood patch.
