Uh oh… to all my men and women who love skinny jeans, you just may want to reconsider. According Fox 28, doctors are warning potential fashion “victims” to beware of their skinny jeans after one woman suffered muscle and nerve damage from a too tight pair of pants.
The unidentified 35-year-old woman was wearing “skinny jeans” when she showed up at hospital with ankle weakness and swelling in her lower legs, according to a case study published this week. The woman told doctors she had been helping a family member move, which led to hours of squatting to clean out cupboards.
She “recalled that her jeans had felt increasingly tight and uncomfortable during the day,” the study authors said in the article published this week in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.
