Meralgia Paresthetica


What the hell is that?? Well, it is also known as "The Tingling Thigh Syndrome." For all you skinny jean buyers - BEWARE!!! The condition can happen when constant pressure from the skin-tight denim — cuts off the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, causing a numb, tingling or burning sensation along the thigh. Typically, sufferers of the nerve condition include construction workers or police officers with heavy, low-slung belts, pregnant women or obese people. But, over the last few years, experts have been seeing more young women at a healthy weight complain of symptoms. The culprit: too-tight jeans.

So, if being in style REALLY HURTS!! Now, you know why!
