Entrapment neuropathies, cervical spondylosis and disc herniations are all well known, common neuromuscular pathologies. A complicated clinical presentation may emerge incase the forementioned problems overlap. We present a similar patient with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, bilateral cubital tunnel syndrome and cervical disc herniations gathering all these challenging problems and discuss the utility of clinical examination, electromyographic evaluations, radiological interventions for the diagnosis - under the scenario of double crush syndrome besides shortly touching upon their management.
