    Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is diagnosed clinically - which means that a health professional will make an assessment of your symptoms and signs when making a diagnosis.

    There are a variety of tests that can be performed that may support a clinical diagnosis of chronic regional pain syndrome. In most cases these tests (such as x-rays, bone scan, MRI and autonomic testing) are not required or indicated, unless there is confusion about the diagnosis and the test results would change your treatment.
