It was prescribed for pain in the groin, suspected Common illiac artery blockage

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
