Pain in left side. Happens after physical activity. Normal in child?

My 10 year old daughter is complaining of left side pain. It is very obvious she is in pain when walking or even riding in car. She vomited when we arrived home from school. I also did a did a urine dip stix on her and it showed small to mod blood and also small protein . She still is having pain in her left side and it is 6 hours later. No fever or other complaints and no burning when urinating. Any idea? Not sure if I should have her seen. She has had no trauma in gym with a ball or no fall. thanks

You have mentioned pain in left side but not mentioned which part of the body, is it stomach, leg or entire body pain.
Since you have said she vomited i assume it is a pain of abdomen.
Abdominal pain for a 10 year child may be due to worm infestation, or muscle spasm. there is also a chance of infection (as in food poisnoning) often there wouldnt be fever . There is no evidence to suggest Urinary tract infection.
You may get her anti-spasmodic and give antiemetic if vomiting is repeated.
Ask for any new food she took from her school. Or enquire her teacher for this history. like kind of food stuff, cooked or uncooked, tinned or not. refrigerated etc
If you find something out of ordinary get her to a paediatrician, he may able to provide appropriate antibiotics to your child
Hope I am of some help
