In brief: Addison's disease

Your history says you have addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), which is not the same as congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
Addison's disease can definitely present with darkening of the skin. Other symptoms can be found here: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/addisons-disease/ds00361/dsection=symptoms.
