    I've never heard of such a thing. It does sound silly but I have to admit I have experienced this. I would wear tight fitting jeans to school and all the walking and prolonged sitting in class, bus rides and in the car while wearing skinny jeans really took its toll on my legs. I'd often have to sooth my aching, tingly legs with a heating pad. Eventually I realized the culprit was my jeans. Now I try to wear looser jeans and pants.

    Not a new problem. When I was a teenager in the 80's, your pants were too loose unless you had to lay on the bed and use a clothes hanger end to get the zipper up. The painted on look was the only way to go.
    Same thing in the 70's . . . . . That coathanger really worked!!

    Interesting and informative article. Hadn't heard about the nerve damage but I remember research from looooong time ago about male fertility isssues with tight fitting clothes. I do remember specifically problems of vaginitis and UTIs for tight clothes for the gals.

    They will eventually discover a related ailment in the pubis area and name it "camel toe syndrome" or something....

    Seeing the title made me think this was going to be a funny post but reading the article opened up my eyes. I never thought about risks like this which is very interesting to learn.

    I am fairly sure I am not the only nurse who had an ER patient with blue hands. She said they turned blue and when she washed her hands they got pink again. Culprit - new blue jeans. heavy price to pay for not washing them before wearing.
    Lol, a few weeks ago I panicked when I was changing into pj s and noticed my legs were dark grey (I am normally pale). My boyfriend kept insisting on taking me to the emergency room but I said no because I felt fine. It took a good hour for me to realize it was from the new black pants I had been wearing.
