Wearing super-skinny jeans and pairing it with ultra-high heels increases the chances of developing Meralgia paresthetica.
Meralgia paresthetica is an entrapment or “pinching” of the nerve that supplies sensation to the outer portion of the thigh. The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve becomes “entrapped” as it passes under the ligament of the groin. The pressure on the nerve causes abnormal sensations of burning, pain, and numbness in the distribution of this nerve, the outer and part of the front of the thigh.
Meralgia paresthetica is also known as lateral femoral cutaneous nerve syndrome.
