Mirena and Insomnia?

Have any of you with a Mirena had any issues with insomnia?

I got my Mirena on 12/27 and so far I absolutely love it.  However, in the past few weeks I've been having serious issues sleeping.  Once I can get to sleep--IF I can get to sleep--I'm usually up about every hour.  Last night I only got about 1.5 hours of sleep.  I'm supposed to be asleep right now, as I have to get up for work in 2.5 hours.  I tried going to bed 3.5 hours ago and have gotten maybe an hour total of sleep.  I've never had sleep issues before--I've always been one of those "asleep as soon as the head hits the pillow"--types and the only thing that's changed in my life has been my Mirena.  I don't see insomnia listed as a side effect on Mirena's website, but doing a quick Google search brings in a TON of results with people with insomnia issues. 

So, divas, any thoughts??  Have any of you had issues with sleep with your Mirena?
