I also have brown pigmentation on my face. I was just diagnosed with Addisons last week. When my endo first looked at me she know something was up due to my coloring. It has to do with your ACTH level and when it is high it stimulates the pigment in your skin. My ACTH level was well above normal range even though my cortisol test came back normal. If you haven't taken the ACTH stimulation test, I would recommend it. It will show you how hard your pituitary is having to work to stimulate your adrenal glands. What are your cortisol results?
