    GERD or Addison's Disease
    An_243250 posted:
    I am very concerned about my son. He is 22 months old, and has never been a big eater. He has lost weight and refuses to eat anything. He has had 2 endoscopys done, which have both shown inflammation of the esophagus. He is on several medications to help control it, but nothing seems to help. All of his blood work has come back normal, except for low carbon dioxide and low iron.

    Tonight I noticed his legs, shoulders, and arms showed darker pigmentation. He has also been scratching and itching his legs and feet all day. He has a runny nose, but no fever. Could this be Addison's disease?
