Lumbar radiculopathy: Nerve irritation caused by damage to the discs between the vertebrae.

No.: Development of a clot of what was once called the long saphenous vein may cause discomfort, tenderness to touch, redness, or warmth over the length of the vein itself -- something called thrombophlebitis.
