The 35-year-old woman had to be cut out of her jeans after she lost the feeling in her lower legs, which had become badly swollen.

The doctors said the tight jeans had caused a loss of blood supply as well as muscle and nerve damage.

The case study, which is published in an online medical journal, says the woman had spent the previous day helping a relative move house and a number of hours squatting as she emptied cupboards, feeling more uncomfortable as the day progressed.

The woman was treated in hospital for four days and is now thought to have made a full recovery.
