Soreness is due to the puncture done for the patch. It will settle in a dew days.
Spinal headache is basically due to the puncture of the dura and due to rupture of small capillaries with in the dura. Even when the blood patch is done, there is still sometimes a mild of headache. And it settles eventually. Are you taking any analgesics?
