Neuritis, inflammation   of one or more nerves. Neuritis can be caused by injury, infection, or autoimmune disease. The characteristic symptoms include  pain  and tenderness, impaired sensation, often with numbness or hypersensitivity, impaired strength and reflexes, and abnormal circulation and decreased ability to sweat in the distribution of the inflamed nerve  or nerves. Although the termneuritis is sometimes used interchangeably with neuropathy , the latter is an often painful condition that is associated generally with nerve damage, dysfunction, or degeneration rather than with inflammation alone. In some instances neuritis can progress to neuropathy. One of the more common forms of the condition is optic neuritis  .
Neuritis can affect one nerve (mononeuritis) or a plexus of nerves (plexitis). When several single nerves are affected simultaneously, the condition may be referred to as mononeuritis  multiplex. When widely separated nerves are affected, it is known as polyneuritis. The symptoms of neuritis are usually confined to a specific portion of the body served by the inflamed nerve or nerves.
Inflammations of sensory neurons in a nerve fibre cause sensations of tingling, burning, or stabbing pains that usually are worse at night and are aggravated by touch or temperature change. The inflammation of motor neurons causes symptoms ranging from muscle weakness to complete paralysis. Muscles in the area served by the affected nerve lose tone, become tender, and may atrophy. Bell palsy, which causes a characteristic distortion of the muscles on one side of the face, is a form of mononeuritis and is caused by the inflammation of a facial nerve (the condition is sometimes also described as a form of mononeuropathy).
