Can my workplace make me do a job that my doctor has restricted me from doing?

Question Details: I am a cashier where I work and I have severe vertigo especially when I turn to the left a lot. So my doctor has restricted me from running any register where I have to turn to the left all day. I have only one register where I work that requires this. I have been on this register before and have gotten so dizzy that I have fallen down. I have gotten several written notes from my doctor stating that I cannot run this register. Can my workplace force me to run this register or not? What can I do if I'm forced to run this register again and I fall and hurt myself? What are my options?
