Good afternoon, thanks for your question. Can you tell me more about Mick?

1) Does he show any signs of discomfort or moaning when walking?
2) Is the moaning AS he lays down or WHILE laying down, and then also turning over?
3) Is Mick currently on any medications?
4) Any pertinent health history of pain? Joint issues? GI problems?
