Hello from JustAnswer. There are many possible symptoms that can occur with adrenal insufficiency. Since the adrenal hormones are general metabolic hormones, they can affect every organ and tissue in the body, so can have potential symptoms from every organ and tissue in the body. The most common symptoms are fatigue, weight loss, decreased appetite, darkening of skin, low blood pressure, low blood sugar, vomiting, diarrhea, musculoskeletal pains, or cold intolerance. The temperature is frequently normal, but there usually would not be hot head or hands. If anything, the low blood pressure that is common will cause the hands to feel cold, even though the body temperature is normal. If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
