Love Your Skinny Jeans? A Woman Collapsed After Wearing A Pair

Published on 23 June, 2015 at 6:19 pm By

Do you love wearing skinny jeans which you think make you look fabulous? well, you need to re-think that. A 35-year-old woman in Australia was hospitalized for four days after experiencing muscle damage, swelling, and nerve blockage in her legs after squatting for several hours while wearing tight-fitting denim, reports Indian Express.

The patient, who was not identified, spent most of the previous day helping someone move, squatting for long periods while emptying cupboards. Clad in skinny jeans, the woman said they felt increasingly tight and her feet became numb, making her trip and fall.

Dr. Thomas Kimber of the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia, in an email, said:



“We were surprised that this patient had such severe damage to her nerves and muscles. Tight jeans have previously been reported to cause nerve lesions in the groin but not the kind of nerve problems in the lower leg and severe muscle damage they saw. Squatting compressed the nerves in the lower leg, reducing the blood supply to the calf muscles and that the skinny jeans worsened the problem.”

 

Kimber further added that  tight pants with more elasticity wouldn’t be as dangerous since they wouldn’t squeeze nerves and muscles.
