Skinny Jeans Given Health Warning

The next time you struggle to squeeze into a pair of ultra tight jeans, beware. Doctors say skinny jeans can seriously damage muscles and nerves.
Doctors said in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry that a 35-year-old woman had to be cut out of a pair after her calves ballooned in size.
Doctors believe the woman developed a condition called compartment syndrome, made worse by her skinny jeans.
Other medics have reported a number of cases where patients have developed tingly, numb thighs from wearing the figure-hugging low-cut denim trousers - although the chance of it happening is still slim for most people.
