Your Skinny Jeans Could Give You a Leg Disorder
I can't imagine anything more uncomfortable than skinny jeans with, perhaps, the exception on stiletto heels. When you have to grease yourself up to get your jeans on and lay down on the bed, that might be a sign of a problem. That being said, however, I do love the look on females, men... uh, not so much. Now, as it turns out, wearing skinny jeans could be hazardous to your health!
You've probably never heard of a disorder called Meralgia Parasthetica. And why would you? Odds are, you're not going to get it. Unless you do the one big thing that's just begging for it. Dr. Karen Boyel of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center says there's been a rise in Meralgia Parasthetica, and it's all because of the rise of . . . SKINNY JEANS.
She says, It's a disorder that occurs when one of the nerves that runs in the outer part of a thigh gets compressed. And pressure on it causes symptoms of tingling, numbness, and pain."
Apparently, it can also cause a BURNING SENSATION in your leg and pain in your groin. And you're already dealing with enough burning sensations as it is, right? If you wear heels with your skinny jeans, that can make the pain even worse.
Fortunately, it can probably be treated if you wear looser pants. You might need some anti-inflammatory drugs, though. The extreme risk is that the nerve has to be removed, which would cause permanent numbness in your leg.
