Not typically: Rsd (or complex regional pain syndrome) does not typically cause fatigue in my experience. Some of the medications we use to treat this condition can cause fatigue though. If someone is having walking problems because of rsd in the foot or leg, they might feel fatigued because it is much harder to walk normally.
