Abdominal pain most severe when lying down

For the past several nights, I have experienced severe abdominal pain (mid section...just below belly button). Laying in a different position doesn't seem to help; heating pad has been marginally helpful. The pain subsides slowly after getting up out of bed. I don't seem to have any other symptoms such as constipation, diarhea, fever, etc. My MD felt around abdomen, checked for hernia, rectal exam... nothing apparent. His advice was to jack up the fiber in my diet, drink lots of water and use Metamucil. The pain returned again last nite and even again a little while ago when after feeling Ok, I laid down... in 20 minutes the pain returned. What's going on? Anybody recognise anything here? I'm not looking forward to going to bed!
