The result of a study using interviews and questionnaires resulted in several important overall themes; that people only seek help for insomnia when their physical health is affected and that they tend to try their own self-remedies first. Those with insomnia bouts attributed it to specific events and tended to wait for the insomnia to resolve by itself. They were surprised when it didn’t although they did not seek help until their job was affected or their overall physical health. Individuals tended to try to help themselves; going on the internet, talking to friends, as methods of their own treatment. They were not immediately referred to sleep specialists by their primary care physician and expressed relief when seen by a sleep specialist.
