In this context, this means "how are you ?".
You can answer:
(I'm (doing)) fine / ok / alright / so-so / great / not so well etc.

Yes. If your boss comes over at your desk and asks you how you're doing, he'll probably shake his head if you answer "I'd be fine but for a bit of a stomach ache". He meant how you were doing with your work. But then, he can sometimes inquire about your health before asking you to come to work next Saturday.
