ill after stopping medrol dose pack

I have empty sella, Hashi's, low AM cortisol.  Normal PM cortisol and normal 24 hr. urine [don't understand this] Unable to take cortisol replacement due to side effects like weight gain and high BP at any meaningful dose.  Was put on a 4mg Medrol dose pack for 6 days for a rash.  You take 6 pills on day one and decrease by 1 pill daily till gone. I have developed dizziness, nausea, weakness and a shakey (shaky) feeling since stopping 2 days ago.  Could this be low cortisol as a result of this med?  I have acess to HC and Pred and was thinking of taking one and raising until symptoms subside and then slowly weaning.  Ideas?  The doc is not addressing this issue either, among others.  
Thank you!
