In brief: Weakness, low BP
In addison's disease, one's adrenal glands are not producing enough cortisone, aldosterone, & sex hormones.
BP is very low; hr can be fast. Chronic nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea; extreme fatigue & weakness; salt craving; darkening of skin in some places, paleness in others -- the person can look patchy. With hormone replacement therapy, normal life is possible. http://tinyurl.com/4ytupea.
