    Does anyone know an appropriate diagnosis code to use for neurogenic claudication?

    Smile Neurogenic claudication

    This is really a way of saying leg pain or numbness (typically caused by lumbar disk disease). You can use 729.5 or 782.0 or both. If it involves lumbar than it would be a radiculopathy. Hope this helps.
