In brief: No specific test

Tests that are performed are merely to rule out the presence of underlying factors such as multiple sclerosis or a tumor. A full exam is performed.
After discussion of type and location of the pain, your doctor will eliminate possible causes. If it warrants further investigation, MRI may be ordered.
