Welcome to our community!
Just a quick note as I’m using my iPhone to type this.
You are fortunate to have caught it early!
But you need to take high enough dosage of antibiotics for long enough time - that is your best chance that knock it out and not become chronic Lyme .
What are you taking and what dose?
If it’s doxycycline - it needs to be 200 mg twice daily - and treat until sign/symptom free for 4 weeks with a minimum of 6 weeks
EDIT: If lyme goes unchecked...yes it could affect your hip. But, you have caught this early...so make sure you treat it sufficiently.
