Hi..welcome to the forum!
Exercise is a way to up the immune system....and if you're flaring and don't have the "stores" of energy in your body to use for exercise, your body is telling you to not be so extreme.
Adjust your exercise routine to very mild and don't push yourself so hard.
You're not going to beat UC into submission if you're pushing your body beyond what it can handle.
It is what it is....you have to change your perception about
what's going to work and what isn't.
Good you're treating from both ends...hope you're having improvement.
Are you eating carbs before your workout? That's what your body needs to run on......

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
