Morton's test (grasp the foot around the transverse metatarsal arch and squeeze the heads of the metatarsals together (5) to rule out Morton's neuroma), and Tinel's sign (tap over the posterior tibial nerve inferior and posterior to the medial malleolus5) were negative bilaterally.
While the symptom presentation and history in this case ruled out CPRS, and a negative Morton's test decreased the likelihood of Morton's neuroma, the remaining 7 conditions remained on the differential.
