In brief: Use it or loose it
Other than the intense burning pain, color and temperature changes that are associated with crps (complex regional pain syndrome), long term complications can include bone and muscle loss and psychological affects such as anxiety and depression.
Working with your health care providers to increase safe and gradual increased functioning of the painful area is the best way to minimize problems.

In brief: Skin Appearance
There are many changes that have to be taken into account like skin appearnce, hair distribution, nail condition and temperature.
This is a complicated diagnosis to make and should not be a do-it-yourself project.Over diagnostic methods involve radioisotope bone scans to look at bone metabolism.You need to be seeing a dr. Experience in diagnosing and treating this condition.
