This is Dr. David
this does not sound like ankylosing spondylitis.
it sounds more like arthritis or bursitis of your hips.
I would continue to exercise but with less high impact
so I would use the stair stepper or the eliptical machine instead of running or jogging.
Thank you and what a relief, I will try low impact exercise as you suggest
you are welcome
let me know if you have other questions.
if done for now, please leave positive feedback below.

I am so sorry re - rating as excellent service, many apologies I inadvertently pressed wrong face
Do not continue to exercise until you see your doctor. As you state, your symptoms progressed with only mild exercise. \
Bursitis does not typically occur in both hips, and you condition can reflect a number of situations.
One is disc problems in the upper an lower spine.
Another is myositis or polymyalgia rheumatica.
All conditions, including bursitis, initially need rest, not exercise, and certainly not exercise when it is causing you to self medicate without a doctors evaluation.
All of these conditions can get worse with exercise. In disc disease, the correct physical therapy and guided exercises are needed, to prevent further damage.
BotXXXXX XXXXXne, it is hurting you, stop for now.
