Does it matter when you ask for the ADA?

Time frame: Does it matter when you ask for accommodations under the ADA? Two weeks in, I brought a doctor's note to the manager of my new job. He wanted to know if I had asked for accommodations when I was hired. I hadn't, because I didn't know the job would aggravate my condition. I had thought I would just try it and see. Anyway, he told me I had to go to HR and fill paperwork out. Do you have to ask at the time you're hired? (Why would I ask for accommodations if everything seemed fine at the time?) Thanks in advance.
