Skinny jeans might look good, and the staple of a geek's wardrobe but it turns out it might be causing you real physical damage instead.
ABC recently interviewed Dr. Karen Boyle from Greater Baltimore Medical Center, who's seen cases of women suffering from pain from tight jeans explains:
"This disorder is called Miralsha Parasthetica and it's a disorder that occurs when one of the nerves that runs in the outer part of a thigh gets compressed. The pressure on it causes symptoms of tingling, numbness and pain in the outer part of the thigh."
Dr Boyle says that people suffering from pain report a floating sensation because they can't feel their lower legs. The problem can be exacerbated by high heels which will cause the pelvis to tilt, increasing the pressure on the nerves in question.
Men on the other hand have to know that tight jeans reduce airflow around the crotch resulting in higher temperatures, which sadly means, a lower sperm count.
But don't worry. This isn't the end of the skinny jeans fad just yet. Dr Boyle suggests buying skinny jeans with a little stretch to them. But if you're suffering from pain from wearing them, then its time to either get into shape, or buy a larger sized one.
