Canít get out of my job

I just found out that I had ADHD a few months ago. After I couldnít figure out why my Work quality was struggling.
I work for a huge company with many options for jobs, the only problem is that I had a really bad review and now when I apply for jobs that are a better fit for me I get turned down without an interview because of my review. Since I have been taking meds my job performance has been much better, but the standards for my job have been raised for the 2nd year in a row (non ADDers are even struggling to keep up). The only way to improve my review and save my employment is to get a new job in the company. My HR dept has not offered any help and stopped responding to my emails.
I am wondering that before I apply for the next job if I should reach out to the hiring manager and tell them my ADHD story to let them know that the reason for my bad review is that the job does not work well for my ADHD. I have worked for this company for 12 years and I have never had issues like this before.
Any advice will be helpful
