Man's Thrombosis Fears Turn Out To Be Jeans Dye


Share this article


A man posted on Twitter to say he was heading to the Emergency Room.

Mark Shrayber explained his legs were turning blue, denim jeans blue.

After a quick google, he thought he was suffering from Deep Vein Thrombosis.

Embarrassing results

But it turns out Mark did not have a clot, thankfully.

He did have a LOT of blue dye on his legs, from a new pair of jeans.

The same pair of jeans he forgot to wash after buying.

His tweets sparked a conversation about embarrassing hospital visits.

...and some pretty awful puns too.

Deep Vein Thrombosis Explained

The HSE's website explains DVT:

"Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot in one of the deep veins in your body, usually in your leg."

"However, most cases of DVT only cause pain, without a change in colour or swelling."

Mark ended his thread by saying:

"Shoutout to everyone this resonated with and esp. people who have gone to the ER because they had panic attacks and were down on themselves"

"Anxiety is real and there’s nothing shameful about getting it treated! "
