As it is published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry wearing tight jeans can be very dangerous.
Scientists have found that wearing these jeans can damage the nerves and muscles, and the best example is a 35-year-old woman whose jeans needed to be cut off because her leg calves were so swollen that they could not be taken off.
It all started when this woman has spent a long time in a crouching position while moving from her home and thus led to numbness and swelling of her legs.
The above mentioned syndrome is a condition that causes bleeding and swelling inside the calve muscle. The calves were so swollen that the woman fainted and was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
There, the doctors found that her leg calves were very swollen.
Although she had good blood circulation in the legs, she was extremely weak and had growing pressure on her calves, which ultimately resulted in damaged nerves in her legs.
The next few days the patient was able to walk.
