I have ms, spinal lesions, legs immobile.  Now losing ability to sit up without great spastic pain and weakness. Why can't i sit up in a chair ?

Complex: The above describes a high burden of disease, and the loss of strength with increasing weakness and spasticity may represent a spinal cord relapse.

Is there any home treatment for nasal polyps ? (Anosmia) loss of sense of smell

Not much you can do: With nasal steroids you can reduce the size, with decongestant you can reduce the swelling and with the allergy treatment you can prevent the recurrences.

Is there an at home treatment for a fungal infection causing hair loss?
