Hello. Thank you for posting.

If you have some sort of inflammation in the abdominal wall, that can cause pain that changes with posture, such as lying down.

When was your c-section? If you are still recovering, the pain might be related to that. We cannot know. Until you see your doctor, warm compress or a light heating pad can be soothing and may help with spasms. Over-the-counter pain medication can help ease discomfort. Avoid positions that aggravate the area. If the pain worsens, don't hesitate to seek immediate medical help.
