Can my boss share personal information about me with other employees or can he ask me for detailed information on my medical condition?

Question Details:

My boss shares information about my unemployment benefits with other employees and when I turned in my medical restrictions he made me feel like I had to tell him what all was wrong with me and how it affects me. Then he shared all of that with my co-workers along with other things. I'm not sure what to do?
