Addison disease produces weakness due to electrolyte disturbances, and increased pigmentation of the skin. Depending on the cause of the disease, there may be symptoms due to underlying pathology, e.g. Tuberculosis, amyloid, autoimmune disease etc. Under stressful circumstances it may lead to shock and death.
