could I have

I am a 43 year old women, I have had type 1 diabetes for most my life I also have low thyroid. For over a year I am just so tierd I have no energy, I still work but it is a sit down job and all I can think of doing it laying down. my leg muscle hurt and if I stand too long they want to give out I have not lost any weight I am of normal weight. no tan skin, I have 2 spots one my leg the other on my neck but I think they been there for like 5 years or even more. I do all of a sudden want to add salt to my food. where befor I never touch the stuff. but it not so bad that I am like eatting pickle all day.At time my blood pressure will drop when I stand and I do get a bet lightheaded at times. I have no insrance but been to my family Dr. he did the routin blood work all came back fine. does it sould like addison or am I just getting old. and all seems normal? Thanks for any help at all

I think you should have your cortisol level checked (rule out Addison's disease) and tilt table testing (rule out postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome).

Best,
