Other types of mononeuropathies include injury to the radial nerve causing “wrist drop”, injury to the ulnar nerve at the elbow “tennis elbow syndrome”, injury of the tibial nerve at the ankle causing “tarsal tunnel syndrome”, and many others. NCS/EMG is paramount in extended additional diagnostic tools to history and exam, and can also help to quantify the degree of injury.
Mononeuritis multiplex, also known as mononeuropathy multiplex or multifocal neuropathy, is a type of peripheral neuropathy. It happens when there is damage to two or more different nerve areas. Mononeuritis multiplex is actually a group of symptoms rather than its own disease. Its symptoms include numbness, tingling, abnormal sensation, lack of sensation, difficulty to control movement, or an inability to move a part of the body.
