Are skinny jeans bad for you?

(WAFB) - Could skinny jeans be bad for you? Some doctors say they're seeing patients suffering from injuries because of the tight pants.

They're calling it tight pant syndrome. The Wall Street Journal reports skinny jeans have been linked to nerve compressions, digestion issues, lower back pain and yeast infections in women.

In rare cases, it is blamed for a condition that causes lesions around the thighs.
