1. As she searched among some potted plants for her missing cat, she suddenly felt a sharp pain on
her left leg.

Do the sentences have the same meaning?

Thanks.

I would say "on her leg" of it was a scratch on her leg by a twig or "in her leg" if it was a pain caused muscle or joint pain.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.
