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.

Word is, 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.
