Stomach pain on lying down

As the topic hints at I get stomach pain on the left hand side of my body every morning that painfully wakes me up. Elevating my body until I am 30 to 45 degrees from the horizontal eases the pain and usually allows me to get back to sleep. The pain usually starts after 6 to 7 hours sleep and I have absolutely no idea what's causing this does anyone else? I would like to get a good nights sleep now and then and any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have been to see my GP about this but with no joy..

About me
45 Year old Male
164 lb 5ft 10inch tall
Renal failure leading to kidney transplant 2 years ago.
Tablets, Immunosuppressants (neoral and cellcept), lisinopril, sodium bicarbonate and omeprozole.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Re: Stomach pain on lying down

Just an update

It turns out that Lisinopril is the culprit, the doc tells me that I have angioedema brought on by a reaction to ace-inhibitors, so Lisinopril is out and replaced with Cozaar which made me feel doped and also brought out another allergic reaction around my eyes :/ I've not been back to see the doc yet but my bp has hovered around 125/75 this last week without bp meds.

I wonder that if my bp was ok to start with and being put on bp meds perhaps the stomach cramps coming on after lying down for a few hours was a result of too low a blood pressure.... hmmm
