Severe headache in a specific sitting position, worse on lying, subsides on standing. Had a spinal block for c-section. Normal spinal headache?

I had a spinal block for a c-section 7 days ago. I did not experience any headaches within 24hours there after. I was however released 3 days later and since then have experienced headaches when I sit in a particutlar position during breast feeding and mostly in the evenings. When the headache appears it gets worse even when I lie down. But when I stand up or walk the pain seems to subside. Is this a normal spinal headache or should I be more worried. I am 28 years old and this was my first pregnancy and delivery.

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, the history that you gave here of headache, this could be the because of spinal anesthesia and this would go away soon no need to worry about this if this does not subside within a couple of week then you have to discus the problem with the doctor who did the c section, hope this information helps you have a good day.
