Have pain on leg. Thighs feel bruised. Am bit overweight. Recommendations?

I ve been having a weird pain radiating from mid calf down to my ankle for about 2 weeks now. It feels kind of tickly.. And recently for the past two days, any time I put pants on or even touch both of my outer thighs, they feel bruised, yet there is no bruise there. I m 19 years old, a bit overweight , but I have recently got back into going to the gym.. Please help me understand what this is!Thank You!

hello there!
Thank you for asking. Age of 19 is too old to be be of some serious trouble. All this is explained by your recent checking in to Gym activities. Also your weight excess is putting extra burden on your thigh muscles to support.
So its just a muscle strain / pull / fatigue due to lactic acid accumulation due to excessive excercise in to gym. Your body is accomodating to the new transitions. Keep doing the excercises. Use some skeletal muscle relaxants like tizanidine and some acetaminophen etc and you will be fine in less than a week. No thing to worry about
