Patient :Hi There, I am an alcoholic. I have been drinking for years heavily (vodka) and then switched to wine to try to tamper down. I ended up drinking a bottle of wine a day for the last few weeks. I recently decided to quit cold turkey. Well for a few days I tried to drink less and then decided Monday (3 days ago) to stop cold turkey. The first day I had the normal withdrawl stuff but very very mild. (just a little shaky and anxiety.) I didnt have anything dramatic like vomitting or hallucinations. Tuesday was fine and today I feel totally normal. (no shaking, no anything). HOWEVER - my legs are a bit tingly (which sadly is normal from the drinkin) but i am getting crazy unexplained bruises. I am trying to figure out if this could be a withdrawl symptom or gout or like a blood clot or something.
Thanks for your query.

-Please post the clear and focused pictures of the bruises as it helps for on-the-spot diagnosis.
