You have to check for cramped styles as well:
 \ifnum\mathstyle=\textstyle \hbox{Text}
 \else\ifnum\mathstyle=\scriptstyle \hbox{Script}
  \else\ifnum\mathstyle=\scriptscriptstyle \hbox{ScriptScript}
   \else\ifnum\mathstyle=\crampedtextstyle \hbox{CrampedText}
    \else\ifnum\mathstyle=\crampedscriptstyle \hbox{CrampedScript}
     \else\ifnum\mathstyle=\crampedscriptscriptstyle \hbox{CrampedScriptScript}
      \else \hbox{nothing} \fi \fi \fi \fi \fi \fi}
