    coming off prednisolone... Help!!

    I was diagnosed 2 - 3 years ago with congentital Adrenal Hyperplasia and was given prednisolone 2.5mg in the morning and 5mg at night. I've been told to reduce the amount over the next few weeks until im no longer taking it. im now on 4mg in the morning but am finding it hard to reduce it to 3mg as i suffer the symtoms of:

    Headache
    Fatigue
    Sluggish
    Nausea and vomiting
    Shaking
    Sweating
    loss of appetite
    rapid heart beat
    feeling weak especially when standing

    i suffered all those symtoms when i first reduced it to the 4mg im now on but the symtoms disappeared after 5days or so but now im trying to reduce it to 3mg the symtoms are getting much worse.
    has anyone ever had to come off prednisolone and had this problem as my consultant seems to think my symtoms are nothing to do with coming off prednisolone.

    any advice or knowledge on this would be appreciated
