No tenderness..she does have a cough right now. Our family has sore throat, fever...
She ran a low grade fever last night

Thank you for the input.
There can be a muscular pain like muscle strain or pull.
This can occur from coughing.
You can give her tylenol or motrin.
Warm application can help.
Sometimes other issues like lung or pleural infection can cause referred pain below.
Kidney infection can also cause pain here.
If you do not see any improvement, I would suggest to get her an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
