Arachnoiditis
Explanation:
It's a medical term and stays the same.

"Arachnoiditis is an inflammation/swelling of the arachnoid membranes around the nerve roots. Later stages can cause pain. People who have arachnoiditis describe the pain as a burning type pain. The pain is located in the lower back region and often times radiates into the legs. Frequently it persists while resting. Arachnoiditis can also cause neurologic dysfunction."

Cheerio,
