Pain/pressure when sleeping with Cup?

Hi everyone,

This is my first post but i've been stalking this community for a while, lol. I just recently started using menstrual cups. So far i've used a small meluna and a small si-bell cup with no real issues. My main problem is that i have not been able to sleep with or even really lie down when i'm wearing my cups. The first time and only time i tried to sleep with the cup, i woke it around 3 am with a severe cramping pressure pain. I could barely walk to the bathroom, i had to crawl. The minute i took the cup out the pain was gone. I just figured the cup was too full. But since then, i can barely lie down when i have it in. I immediately start feeling pressure/cramping. when i sit up, it goes away. Has anybody experienced this before? What could be causing it?
