Can a store manager refuse my FMLA?

I work for Wal-Mart in Portage, WI. My doctor filled out my FMLA and I turned it in. The store manager told me that the way the doctor worded it that she didn't have a position for me. She gave the FMLA back to me and told me that I needed to take it back to my doc and have it re-worded.
The part of the FMLA that my store manager said would end my position is worded like this...

Is the associate unable to perform his/her job functions due to the condition? The answer is yes.
If yes, identify the job functions the associate is unable to perform:
The answer is recurrent lifting, bending, twisting, prolonged standing, if exacerbation.

Do I need to take it back to my doc and have it re-worded? I have missed a few days, and have had to go home after half of my shift that I'm being penalized for under my FMLA.

Please help.

It's best to telephone my office to discuss as I cannot give clear-cut yes or no answers from this short email. My number is 414-748-4878 and my firm is Enochs Law Firm, LLC.
