(Scroll down for video) A woman was rushed to a hospital after suffering nerve damage to her legs while wearing extremely tight jeans, doctors in Australia said.
The 35-year-old woman suffered damage to the nerve and muscle fibers in her legs after spending several hours squatting in tight jeans while helping a family move to a new home.
The woman experienced a lot of pain and discomfort after spending the day helping her family move. On her way home, she fell down on the ground and laid there for several hours until someone found her.
She was taken to a nearby hospital and could not walk normally for four days. When examined at the hospital, her legs were so swollen that her jeans had to be cut off.
The patient was treated with intravenous fluids. Her leg function improved significantly, and by the time she was discharged from the hospital, she was able to walk on her own.
