That's what I heard a lot of. As Manderson and Derrie have mentioned, don't fret the Addison's. Just the thyroid getting out of whack can do all sorts of "odd" symptoms like you're experiencing. The thyroid regulates all sorts of stuff, including blood pressure and blood sugars. Just using a TSH test is not sufficient to use for a diagnosis. The "best" way is a basal body temperature test, though most docs (not forgetting the patients) don't wanna go through that, and the TSH, T3 & T4 tests are usually good enough to follow "progress" with, after the initial "full battery" of tests for diagnosis, which would include lipids and minerals, among other tests that I can't remember the names of anymore... (bad "fogbank" again today)
