I have high blood pressure & A-fib. I work 12

I have high blood pressure & A-fib. I work 12 hr. days, 5 days a week. My work environment is not climate controlled. If it is 90° outside, it is 110°-120° inside, where i am working. My job has me walking about 5 miles a day, with constant trips up & down stairs.
I have been to the hospital at least 10 times in the past year for symptoms related to the illnesses I've stated above.
With the summer coming up, my cardiologist Dr. is very hesitant about letting me return to work, as the work conditions will be much harsher.
Can the Dr. Prevent me from working?
Can my employer not allow me to return to work without my Dr.s consent?

I have had those symptoms for about 1 and 1/2 month. I have been on antibiotics on and off during that time. I have atrial fib, Type II diabetes and have had high blood sugar. I am on Metformin and just started taking insulin. I have eaten some fruit and tomato s that were imported from Mexico and other countries. Could that be it? I am sorry but I cannot pay at this time. Maybe by Thursday of this week. Sorry I bothered you.
