  • Type of Study: Observational/Survey

Patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) sometimes get good pain relief from sympathetic block procedures. Other patients may have a very small response. The purpose of this research study is to see whether a blood test can help predict whether or not a patient will be helped by sympathetic blocks. We will measure levels in your blood of several compounds that are related to inflammation.
