      Hello Praveen Yes, tension in the muscles of the upper back can pull on the base of the skull and cause headaches, sometimes all the way over the top to the eye sockets. Here's a page that may be of use to you:

      Hello Gillian I'm afraid we can't offer you anything for the infection but we might be able to help you sleep a little more deeply. Our Dormeasan drops can both deepen and lengthen sleep and are best taken an hour before bed and again upon any disturbance. Just don't use on top of any other medicine for sleeping or anxiety.
