Skinny Jeans Are Dangerous? | 27 May 2009 | Though skinny jeans look great doctors say they can be dangerous for our health. According to some experts tight jeans might cause a nerve problem called meralgia paresthetica.

Together with high stilettos skinny jeans put great pressure on the femoral cutaneous nerve that runs through the thigh. As a result ladies often feel tingling and burning through the leg.

The affliction has already been named as “tingling thigh syndrome. A woman who developed the one said:
"It felt really strange – it felt like my leg had gone to sleep.”

However, the condition is not new and has largely appeared in construction workers, pregnant women and obese people; even young, fit women do suffer it sometimes.

Dr. John England of the American Academy of Neurology said:
"The nerve, in some people, is susceptible to compression. It is a pure sensory nerve – it doesn’t go to muscles or provide strength. Anything that is tight around there could potentially compress the nerve that goes there.”

But before you decide to throw your skinny britches away, remember that the damage is not permanent as it is eliminated as soon as you remove the pressure.

Just don’t wear skinnies all the time, make alterations in your appearance and everything’s going to be all right. (Nino Guevara Ruwano)
