Sorry to hear that you are suffering from Ankylosing Spondylitis. As the joints especially the spine get inflamed, moving the joint causes immense pain. Visit a good rheumatologist who can put you on the right medication to bring the inflammation and pain under control.
Next Steps
Keeping the joints supple and mobile is critical to counter stiffness. So exercises are important. If you have access to a swimming pool, do exercises inside the pool. Keep walking as well. Obviously this will be possible only pain is brought under control with medications.
