Sharp, stabbing pain in my lower abdomen, vomiting sensation. What is the treatment?

Yesterday, I couldn t eat. I would take a few bites and feel like I would vomit . Last night, I woke to sharp, stabbing pain in my lower abdomen . Eventually I did sleep but woke this morning with the pain and was doubled over for a half hour or so. Pain is still there, not as severe but present nonetheless. I have had 3 c-sections and the pain is around the incision area on the inside. It is worse when laying down. More descriptive could be I feel as if internal stitching has been torn apart while on fire.

Your history of previous 3 C section and pain over the incision area, this may be due to impending scar rupture,
You havnt given when is the last C section done.
If it is in very recent there is a possibility of wound infection. Usually old C section scar has a possibility of rupture when the uterus expands as in pregnancy.
You need to consult your surgeon for further advice
