The telltale signs are all there—the sore, scratchy throat; the relentless facial pain; the classic headache; and the dreaded nasal congestion. For some of you readers, this list of symptoms is all too familiar to you. Yep, it’s the beastly sinus infection. We’ve gathered a list of seven struggles that will make all sinus-problem sufferers laugh…and then cry. But don’t worry. We know how relatable (and miserable) these struggles are, so when you’re done reading this blog post, you can schedule an appointment to say “sayonara” to your frequent sinus infections.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. (We bet that song is stuck in your head now…oops.)

The holidays bring cozy days full […]
Trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat! Do you remember how funny this little jingle used to be as a kid? If you have kids, they probably love it as much as you did back in the day. A couple of days ago, we celebrated Halloween—the spookiest and most ghastly holiday of them all. But Halloween is about more than just jack-o-lanterns and scary costumes. It’s about candy. Mounds and mounds of glorious goodness! As adults, we know that candy isn’t the most nutritious of snacks. Regardless, the excitement that kids feel while trick-or-treating is priceless. It’s no surprise that Americans spend $6 billion each year on Halloween. That makes it our second-largest commercial holiday.
When it’s 11 PM and your child is still bouncing off the walls (for the fifth night in a row), you know something’s gotta change. Your kid might be the cutest, sweetest, most adorable baby on the planet, but you and that baby both desperately need sleep. That’s right, it’s time to implement a sleep […]
This week, clinics and hospitals across the country celebrate Healthcare Quality Week. The purpose is to applaud the contributions professionals have made in the field of healthcare. At the Pasha Snoring & Sinus Center, we take great pride in providing long-term solutions for snoring, sleep apnea, allergies, and sinus-related disorders.

Better yet, have you ever snored in public? We’ll take a look at five of the most embarrassing spots to be caught sno
Ah-ah-ahchoo! It’s that dreaded time of year—sure, the weather feels great. But it’s also cold season. Or is it allergy season? Either way, you’re feeling miserable and you’re sneezing so much that your coworkers are threatening to make you work alone in the dark, creepy basement. But really, when it comes down to it, it […]
Ahhh, bed sweet bed. Your adorable, teething baby woke up at 3:30 AM this morning, which means you tackled three client meetings, an hour and a half of stop-and-go traffic, and two loads of laundry all while running on about four hours of sleep (since you just had to watch that next episode of your favorite Netflix show). You’d think that sleep would come pretty much instantly once you laid down on your perfectly fluffy pillow, yet for some reason, sleep just won’t show its lovely face. Before you decide on calling in sick tomorrow, check out our tips to help create the optimal sleeping conditions so you can fall into that deep, sweet slumber you’ve been looking forward to all day.
April showers bring May flowers. For allergy sufferers, June brings…relief? Not quite. While spring is when allergies ramp up for a lot of Houstonians, the summer months can also be tough for many. Summer officially kicked off last week, so we’ll take a look at the top summer allergens on a month-by-month basis. Even if your allergies have you feeling sour, you don’t have to miss out on summer fun! We’ll also touch on some popular indoor activities to check out.
Today is National Doctor’s Day! Promoted by Physicians Working Together (PWT), a grassroots group that addresses issues pertinent to healthcare, National Doctor’s Day is part of National Physician Week. The goal of this week is to preserve a quality medical system that is based on the patient-physician relationship, something we take pride in at the Pasha Sinus & Snoring Center. As part of our promise to educate our patients, we’re uncovering the link between allergies and sleep issues because, often, they’re not as unrelated as they may seem.

Read about some of the ways the weather can set off your sniffling and sneezing.
