Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients with peroneal mononeuropathy present with frequent tripping due to a foot drop.

  • Night cramps may occur in the anterior lower leg early in the course (if the compression is chronic).

  • If the compression is acute, the symptoms are likely to be maximal at onset.

  • Pain may occur at the site of compression and early in the lateral lower leg and foot.

  • Sensory disturbances (e.g. tingling, numbness) in the lateral lower leg and foot may be noted.
