In brief: Work with MDs

You need a specialist in your problem not just an any intestinal problem. Seek out a second opinion in a teaching hospital preferably one that is tops in all intestinal problems.
With just Colitis you should not be in this kind of trouble. Your symptoms suggest more than simple Colitis. Go now to a top teaching hospital of excellence and present yourself to the ER. You may need IV treatment
