Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Many young kids are heavily influenced by what they see their idols wearing. When rappers like Lil Wayne and Kid Cudi step out at an event wearing skinny jeans, many teens try to emulate them.
Rappers aren't the only ones who have made the super tight pants popular. There are plenty of actors and singers who have helped to make skinny jeans the "in" thing among the general population. However, some doctors are now warning that wearing the jeans can be a health hazard.
According to ABC News, wearing the jeans can temporarily pinch the nerves in your hips causing something called meralgia paresthetica.
"The disorder that occurs when one of the nerves that runs in the outer part of the thigh gets compressed. The pressure on it causes symptoms of tingling, numbness and pain," said Urologist, Dr. Karen Boyle.
Other possible heath hazards include abdominal pain, heartburn and blood clots.
The next time you try to squeeze into a pair of skinny jeans you might want to think twice.
