I just googled for more on neuropathic pain after C-section and found this (though do note that I cannot attest to its accuracy or clinical validity, it's just to give you an idea and somewhere to go from should you visit your doctor):

I would say if the pains are ever moderate to severe, then you should get yourself checked out either by your primary physician or by your ob-gyn. It may just be some scar adhesion and they may be able to recommend something for you to do to ease that, but there are a lot of organs underneath that area and you could have an intermittent issue somewhere else.

How long ago did you have your C-section?

I actually have the opposite problem in that the area of my Caesarean (sorry, Brit spelling, I'm only an American-in-training) has lost all feeling after the severance of nerves. I have to be careful if I ever use one of those plug in heat pads to go to sleep with, as I'll burn that area before I notice! I understand though that some women can and do experience neuropathic pain after this surgery.

You might also have some scar tissue adhesions in that area of your abdomen.

Liz , I looked it up and it has helped me, It must be the nerves. Thank you again for your help.

Thank you for your input.It has been over 15 years now, since I had the cecerean. I get pains that may come and go on my cut. It is an up and down one. If it is cold, it gets pains and have to put a blanket on my belly to stop the pains. Sometimes I get pains like someone is stabbing me.
