Thanks for posting your query on Health Care Magic.

Abdominal pain after sleeping on stomach can be due to pressure on the abdomen.
Since, this posture is not recommended while sleeping.

However, if the pain persists at other positions and postures, you need to undergo some investigations.

An ultrasound abdomen will help to know if there is any abnormality in the abdominal organs.
You can consult a gastroenterologist for clinical examination and relevant investigations.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.
