Feels like I'm walking on sandpaper. Also pain in my thigh muscles the last 4 days. Not diabetic. Is this nerve pain? Will it resolve on its own?

Muscle cramp: Muscles cramp for a variety of reasons, but once you have one its hard to get rid of it. Make sure that you are stretching properly and working on conditioning.

Swollen and painful lymph node in groin. Also thigh pain on same side, pain started after possibly pulling a muscle. Are the two related to injury?

Groin/thigh pain: Usually a pulled muscle does not cause lymph node swelling. Lymph nodes usually swell in infection rarely in tumor. Groin LN usually drain the leg/ vaginal/vulva area. Also consider possible clot/hematoma( bleeding into soft tissue from trauma) if thigh pain ( though clots usually don't cause LN swelling). Would seek medical attention today, one can get an infection rather easily and quickly ...Read more

Strain of calf: Strain means a torn muscle.Mostly commonly it is the calf muscles, the gastrosoleus complex. But an achilles tendon injury can be confused with it.See a doctor to make sure it is not an achilles tendon injury, that needs active treatment. ...Read more

Varies: If it is both legs, it would seem a little unlikely to have occurred simultaneously. Another possibility is it is from your back. People with back injuries can have pain running into the legs and this pain is characteristically worse with motion on the head/neck, which increases the pressure in the spinal canal. ...Read more
