His legs had turned blue and he feared the worst. However, embarrassment could not describe how he felt when he was informed that it was in fact his new jeans which dyed his legs.
Twitter user MShrayber took to social media to share the hilarious story. He tweeted:
"Went to the ER because “my legs have turned blue and Web MD says I have deep vein thrombosis.” Was this it? The big one? No! I have the “dumbass who doesn’t wash his new jeans before wearing them” disease and I would like to be executed immediately"
His post went viral on social media as thousands of amused people shared their thoughts and similar experiences. Twitter user SLHDC said:
"Went through a phase where I was seriously concerned I had a brain tumour or something because everything I ate - including things like pasta with marinara sauce - tasted like peppermint. Finally I realised a bottle of peppermint extract had spilled all over my pots and pans."
"When I was in middle school I sat my parents down to tell them I had cancer bc I had mysterious bruises all over my body. When they finally stopped laughing at me they explained that I sleep-walk into a table every night."
"Reminds me of the time I was about to take my 6 month old to the ER because his foot was purple. Turned out SOMEBODY forgot to add on his daycare sheet that they were doing foot print painting that day."

"If it makes you feel better, I had abdominal surgery and ended up back in the ER the next day because my stool was red. They tested a sample, of course, then one nurse asked: what have you been eating? And that's how I found out living on jello for a while can stain things."
