Can I actually be making my AS worse here, instead of better?

I don't have the answer to whether you're making the AS worse or better, but you do deserve to feel as good as you possibly can! heart

I've given up the machines at the gym & hiking because my body simply hurts too badly after I do these things. The only way I can exercise without feeling pain afterward is by swimming or with tai chi.

Maybe you could do hot yoga? or deep water aerobics without the ankle & arm weights? yes
