You message is difficult to read, but have you tried *NIntegrate[]*? For
instance,
sol =
NDSolve[{y'[x] == y[x] Cos[x + y[x]], y[0] == 1}, y, {x, 0, 30}]
y[x_] = y[x] /. sol[[1]]
Plot[y[x], {x, 0, 30}]
Integrate[y[x], {x, 5, 10}]
NIntegrate[y[x]^2, {x, 5, 10}]
{{y->InterpolatingFunction[{{0.,30.}},<>]}}
InterpolatingFunction[{{0.,30.}},<>][x]
