Unlikely: You might be experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) which often occurs after bouts of intense weight-bearing exercise. There have been cases of patients actually damaging muscles (rhabdomyolysis) after crossfit-style workouts, which actually can be dangerous and cause kidney damage. Perhaps try a different form of resistance training.

Many things: The differential diagnosis for these complaints is very broad. I suggest you start by seeing your primary care physician to be evaluated or perhaps a neurologist if you have access to specialists. Good luck!

Exercise!: The benefits of regular exercise such as running are many and well-researched. Cardiovascular activity boosts the immune system, increases blood flow to your brain and tired muscles and releases "feel-good" molecules into the body. The biggest challenge is getting over that initial "I don't feel like it" block because, as you identified, as soon as you exercise you feel great!
