I know it's strict for disability to approve someone's application to stay out of work if it's a medical problem and my medical condition I know won't be but it's affecting my job and my health. I know it might sound silly to some but I have chronic constipation and I have to push so hard at the end that sometimes I see black for a second then stars and sometimes my feel a little pain in my heart and it's bad for me to do this since I have high blood pressure but it's the only way I can get more out since it feels like it's there but can't come out. My doctor gave me linzess and that gives diarrhea and gas and this can last at least 6 hours. I'm supposed to take it before breakfast for at least 30 days without stopping. All the medications for constipation give diarrhea and that's the main purpose to get everything out. I even tried another doctor and he gave me different medications and all of it had the negative side effect of diarrhea. There is no way I'm going to work with diarrhea and gas, that's not going to happen. Can a doctor excuse me from work for 30 days under FMLA for this reason? The problem is that I already missed too many hours from work due to this problem that I am getting closer to either getting fired or having to quit before I lose all of the time I have left. A few times it's so bad that what happens is that I go to the bathroom before the shift and then I feel like I didn't all of it out and then when I'm working I start feeling and hearing gas and other people can hear this and it won't stop no matter what and I can go to the bathroom and push really hard and even if a little or some comes out, the gas or crap, it still won't stop so I have to leave the job and go home and drink the linzess so this means I just lost hours of work because of this. I also get a tingling feeling on my forehead when I push hard. I am doing damage to my health by pushing hard but this is what chronic constipation makes you do. I'm sure it's doing damage to my kidneys since I have kidney disease and high blood pressure makes it worse.
