If you're not responding to steroids, perhaps it could be an infection like c difficile? I hope they've done a stool test to check... It's known for false-negatives, so I'd ask for a second test. Antibiotics treat infections...www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18484669
Biologics like Remicade are often good rescue medications, especially when given at maximum dosage (10mgs per kilogram).
Cyclosporine is another great rescue medication when IV steroids fail. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1774959/
I hope you feel better soon.
