The pants constricted the blood supply to her calf muscles and the 35-year-old collapsed. While the “fashion victim,” as she’s referred to in the paper, has made a full recovery, the author and consultant neurologist Professor Thomas Kimbe warns those who insist on still wearing the slim style should learn a lesson from this incident and make sure to stand up and walk around if their legs get tingly.
