Professional sales is a high stress, demanding job, although one of the more rewarding financial professions available. Your symptoms will be difficult to show that it is your boss' doing given the nature of the work. The self-serving statements by your physician are merely a reiteration of what you told the doc, so are of no value. Go ahead and discuss you matter with an employment attorney, but you might also seek another line of work, since your health is diminishing. Good luck.
