    Hi Paul,

    Welcome to the community! It depends what you mean by "down as a disability". The Government say:
    A person is considered to have a disability if they report a long-standing illness, disability or impairment which causes substantial difficulty with day-to-day activities. This is the core definition of disability in the Equality Act.
    It sounds like this definition might apply to you.

    Are you asking because you're interesting in benefits you might be eligible for?
