Can I go on disability if I have an acute DVT that affects my alertness?

? I don't understand how a DVT can affect your alertness. A DVT is a deep vein thrombosis - usually in the leg or arm. If your alertness is affected, that's something in the brain. The only reason to go on disability (temporary) from a DVT is if you are unable to walk because of it and your job requires it. But that should last just a few weeks at most.
