Ask ur OB: Women have all kinds of funny muscle and nerve sensations after a C-section. It is a big surgery and goes through five layers of tissue. Regardless it's important to report this to your OB and have her examine you for complications

NSAIDs: Sounds like symptoms consistent with the expected uterine involution. Additionally, the effects of scarring and healing also contribute to the overall picture. A little Motrin goes a long way.
