Insomnia and epilepsy

Does anyone have issues when their epilepsy worsens, they also get insomnia? I had a tonic clonic in public the other day (of all places) and several since, out of nowhere... and even though I am exhausted I cannot sleep! When I do it's for a couple of hours. This is horrible! It's happened before I just never made the connection.
