Definition of lumbosacral neuritis?

See below

Neuritis
Neuritis means inflammation of a nerve, but we would not usually describe lumbosacral nerve problems by that term. MIght instead use radiculitis or radiculopathy. Not sure of what context this was introduced, but perhaps this refers to pain radiating from your spine down a leg. If occurring after back surgery, perhaps post-op scarring or arachnoiditis.
