Sleep disorders are rampant in today's society yet many people simply ignore the symptoms. If you continually have trouble falling asleep at night or you feel drowsy and lethargic throughout the day, there's a good chance you're suffering from a sleep disorder.

There’s nothing quite as terrible as crawling into bed early to ensure you get enough sleep for the day ahead only to not be able to fall asleep. If this is a persistent issue, you may have a sleeping disorder. The inability to stay awake, fall asleep, or achieve the R.E.M. state of sleep may indicate you suffer from a sleep disorder. At El Paso Pulmonary Association, we specialize in correcting sleep disorders, so you can get a good night’s sleep every night. Here are two of the most common, yet significantly different, sleep disorders you may suffer from.

Sometimes a cough is much more than just a cough. Bronchitis can be a roadblock on the path towards living a healthy life. If you're unsure about whether or not your bronchitis is chronic, a bronchitis doctor can help!

The CDC reports that 8.7 million people were diagnosed with chronic bronchitis in the US in 2014. Bronchitis is a condition where the air passages of the lungs become inflamed. This usually occurs from an infection or irritation. The trachea (or windpipe), the large bronchi, and the small bronchi are all affected by bronchitis. Temporary bronchitis is known as acute bronchitis, and recurrent cases are chronic. Both of these require medical assistance from a bronchitis doctor. Chronic bronchitis can last for months or even years and is a serious medical condition.

We're deep in the throws of El Paso's windy season. These high winds along with the springtime pollination can cause allergies to sprout up. Instead of suffering through your allergies, you could visit an allergy doctor!

If you have been in your local drug store, then you’re well aware of the allergies aisle. Drops, sprays, mists, and pills are among the items available to help sufferers reduce the issues and make them feel better. These items generally only warn of drowsiness and/or dry mouth as potential side effects associated with these medications. If you feel as if you have tried them all and still have little to no relief, then it may be time to seek out an allergies doctor at El Paso Pulmonary Association.

COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is a progressive lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe. Sometimes referred to as chronic bronchitis or emphysema, COPD is chronic and long term. While there’s no cure for this disease, it is preventable and treatable. There are several different kinds of treatment for COPD including but not limited to medication, bronchodilator use, steroids, self-care and lifestyle changes, oxygen therapy, and pulmonary rehabilitation. Most doctors will advise those suffering from COPD to engage in regular physical exercise, quit smoking, and practice diaphragmatic breathing. Another treatment that is often discussed but is increasing in popularity is the ketogenic diet to decrease inflammation within the body and increase overall blood oxygen levels. If you’re in need of medical assistance, El Paso Pulmonary is ready to help.

If you've been a heavy smoker for most of your life, you should have yearly lung cancer screenings. Through screenings, your pulmonologist can find any issues that may arise and offer treatment to help you on the road toward recovery.

Cancer is a devastating disease that affects many people and families every year. There are those sadly common stories of individuals who learn that they have cancer too late and fall victim to the disease soon afterward. Cancer can sometimes lie dormant and not rear its ugly head until it’s too late. Thankfully, there are screenings people can take in order to check for cancer. Smokers, for example, are more susceptible to lung cancer. If you need a lung cancer screening, El Paso Pulmonary can help.
