In brief: Rare but possible
I have had a few patients that had itching associated with other symptoms of nerve root compression, both of which resolved after adressing the compression.
However, this is a diagnosis of exclusion and other more common entities should be investigated first (allergies, dermatologic conditions, etc.).

In brief: Pruritis?
Prurits is the medical term for "ichy".
Generally it does not occur with a pinched nerve.
