With the combinative nerves you could observe faint symptoms – muscle weakness, hypotrophy, lost of reflexes, paralysis.
The causes of neuritis are:
- Trauma in the area of the nerve. The pressure or the damage of the wholeness of the nerve leads towards an inflammation reaction
- Following diagnosis – diabetes, some autoimmune diseases – Multiple sclerosis and etc.
