If you’ve ever done any serious moving in skinny jeans, you’re probably aware that they can get pretty uncomfortable. (They’re definitely not yoga pants.) You probably didn’t know, however, that tight skinny jeans can also get dangerous.
In a new case study published in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, doctors highlight a 35-year-old woman who arrived at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia. She presented with weakness in both ankles and feet, so much so that she was unable to walk. She also suffered severe swelling below the knees in both legs, so much so that doctors had to cut her jeans off the previous day.
She recalled to doctors that the issues had begun the day before, when she was helping a relative move and spent hours squatting to empty cupboards. She’d been wearing skinny jeans at the time, and remembered they grew increasingly snug and uncomfortable the longer she had them on.
The doctors determined her symptoms were the result of nerve damage in both legs, two factors,
“It was the combination of squatting and tight jeans that caused the problem, Squatting would have compressed the personal nerves in the lower leg and reduced the blood supply to the calf muscles; the tight jeans meant that, as the calf muscles started to swell in response to the reduced blood supply, they compressed the adjacent tibial nerves and further cut off the blood supply to the muscles.”
The fix was prolonged, but simple: the woman was put on an IV drip for four days, before being discharged from the hospital. “This was required, as the muscle damage had caused a condition called rhabdomyolysis — or, severe breakdown of muscle fibers — which might have damaged her kidneys if not treated with IV hydration,”
Dr. John Michael Li, a neurologist at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, told that people can suffer from “tight pants syndrome,” or abdominal discomfort, heartburn and belching. They can also cause meralgia paresthetica, or a feeling of numbness running down the leg.
And men should be extra careful when donning skinny slacks, as they can bring on testicular torsion, which is where one testicle gets twisted, hampering circulation, causing severe pain, swelling, and — in extreme cases — causing the testicle to die.
Note : Peoples wears Skin tight Pajama as a fashion, as both skiny Jeans & Pajama are skin tight so both might have same side affects on health.
