Is this a reason to call off of work?

So I've been diagnosed with chiari malformation. I basically have all the symptoms.. I have awful vertigo, I cant walk that good, I cant lift anything with my left arm, I have constant headaches, I have about 3-5 panic attacks each day completely random. My mom thinks I shouldn't go to work OR even be left... show more So I've been diagnosed with chiari malformation. I basically have all the symptoms..

My mom thinks I shouldn't go to work OR even be left alone until I have surgery for this which will most likely be in about a month. It gets worse each day. As I'm typing this I'm having chest pains..... I don't know if my boss will let me take off. I'm 18 if that matters.
