Could I have Addisons?

I'm due to see an endocrinologist but it's a fair wait. I'm suffering from most of the symptoms, especially fatigue (actually exhaustion) and thirst, low blood sugar and dizziness, I have IBS....but my electrolytes came back normal. Also I have a patchy tan on my face but no skin darkening anywhere else.
I lost my appetite last year and lost 8kg in 3 months, but since being on mirtazapine I've got my appetite back. So I don't know if that's a fluke thing or if the medication is masking it.
Recently I've had this mad craving for liquorice and grapefruit juice. I can't get enough of it, so in addition to drinking 3+litres of water a day I'm also drinking 2 litres of grapefruit juice as well. Anyone here with Addisons ever experience that?
Or is it more likely in view of all this that I have something else?
I'd really so appreciate your viewpoints based on how it compares to your symptoms before you were diagnosed.
Many thanks
