Wa alaykum assalam warahmatullah wabarakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.
All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.
May Allah grant you quick recovery from this illness and keep you steadfast on His religion.
The case as you described does not sound like a case of necessity. You just “feel uncomfortable at work”. So, I would suggest you take a leave till you get cured.
Pray to Allah to help you overcome this difficulty. Show Him your humility and need for His support to abide by the teachings of His religion. Allah never lets down His sincere servants.
Almighty Allah knows best.
