In brief: Neuritis

Neuritis is an inflammation of the nerves.
If the nerves are motor type that convey impulses to muscles then weakness and atrophy can occur if the neuritis is prolonged. There are a myriad of causes and a variety of nerve types that can become inflamed. See a neurologist to determine the cause of the neuritis and to develop a treatment plan.
