My friend is 42. He drinks alcohol everyday. When he urinated it is never a steady stream and I don t know if this is relevant but, his skin bruises very easy. He doesn t have health insurance so it is difficult for him to go to the doctor and get the testing that he needs. He also has periods of pain and swelling in his right foot and ankle. It also happens in his left elbow. Any advice or help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I am very worried about him. Sincerely, Karen.
