2. Wearing Tight Clothing
One of the possible causes of meralgia paresthetica is wearing clothing that is too tight. When you wear clothes that are tight it puts pressure on the skin. The clothing also compresses the muscles of the legs.
When these muscles become compressed it puts added pressure on the tissues and joints in the legs. Tight pants, belts, and other forms of tight clothing can all cause a person to develop meralgia paresthetica. One of the easiest ways to avoid developing this condition is to make sure that you are wearing clothing that is loose.
If you tend to wear tight clothing often, you can increase your chances of developing meralgia paresthetica. While not everyone who wears tight clothing will develop this condition, people who tend to wear this type of clothing often increase their chances of developing meralgia paresthetica. Making the simple change to looser fitting clothing can decrease your chances of developing the condition and can also help to cure the ailment.
