Brief Answer:
Muscle, Bowel, kidney and appendix

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to healthcare magic.
From what I understand these would be my possibilities
1) Muscle sprain would be my first , yes there are muscles in that area which can hurt if stained
2) Colitis or appendicitis if she feels pain on pressing deeply in that spot. You need to get her examined for confirmation. An Ultrasound examination if needed may be ordered to find out the cause
3) Kidney, ureter stones can cause pain in that area

If she is doing well otherwise, I would suggest to take lot of fluids initially and try if pain subsides with rest ( muscular )
Hope I answered your query
Wishing your daughter speedy recovery
