A woman said she nearly died from wearing tight shorts after enduring eight hours of wedgie while out on a date with her boyfriend.
Sam, from North Carolina in US, shared her ordeal on TikTok when she recovered from a life-threatening reaction to an infection.
She said she was having a "sore a**" for a few days after the date with her boyfriend.
"I started to feel sick and went to the doctor. They give me antibiotics for a possible 'skin infection' in my a** crack," Sam explained.
"Next day, feeling awful. I can't walk so I go to the ER and insist I'm in the worst stabbing pain."
She was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, where doctors revealed that she has sepsis and cellulitis.
While the experts told her that she might have to undergo an operation to remove the infection, Sam joked that she was "constantly having to show my a** to doctors every day".
But luckily, she did not have to do the surgery.
In another clip, Sam shows viewers the shorts she wore was an expensive one from popular fashion retailer Revolve.
She then explained: "So what happened on that day was I was wearing boy shorts underwear and the material kept clumping up and I kept picking my wedgie.
"It just happened and I kept doing it, and at some point, it happened."
Sam also told Buzzfeed: "The timeline goes like this: I went on a full day-date with this guy I was newly dating, and realised I was wearing very uncomfortable clothes.

"I chose to ignore it and just enjoy my time.
"The next day, I felt very sore and then started feeling ill – just not 100%.
"That night, I noticed that I had a large bump where the chafing had occurred, and as time went on, it started becoming more painful.
"The pain was isolated to one spot and it felt like a throbbing, stabbing pain."
