comment What controls the feeling of discomfort/comfort before and after sleep?
The compound you're thinking about is lactic acid. When oxygen is low, pyruvate is reduced to lactic acid to regenerate NAD+. It might have something to do with the aching related to sleep, but I'm not sure.

comment What negative effects can pinhole glasses have on the body?
Oops, I meant that patching in children can correct amblyopia.

comment What negative effects can pinhole glasses have on the body?
A good reference by someone who studies child vision is here, and a less technical one is here. The infant brain is highly plastic. Completely patching the eye (24/7) will cause form-deprivation myopia, but interestingly, patching a few hours a day (in young children) can correct myopia. But I don't know how pinhole glasses will affect them. And as for studies, well, everything I can find online sounds like a scam.
