It would be nice if you give some more details like whether you are using
fancyhdr..... I would be even nicer if you give a minimum working example
showing the behavior.
Meanwhile, you may try to use the optional argument for chapters and
sections like

\chapter[short title]{long title}
\section[short title]{long title}

Short title will be used for running content like headers and TOC.
