Can neck strain during exercise cause lhermitte's sign (sit ups, push ups, stair climbing).Began w/pulled muscle in lower back&spread to neck.
Really shouldn't: Understand that lhermitte's sign is a shock-like sensation that radiates to arms and legs during a flexion or forced flexion maneuver of the neck. Classically, this was used to identify ms. It is presently used to commonly identify symptomatic spinal cord compression. So, if you are not having the arm/leg symptoms, this is not lhermitte's sign. If yes, you should consider evaluation by spine md. ...Read more
Eyelid/face twitching/spasms after doing chin ups, push ups, and chest dips. I have mild sore neck as well. No real pain. What's causing this?
Myokymia: Random twitching of an eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. In the eyelids, it can last a few minutes to a few days. It can be caused by stress, dry eyes, lack of sleep. I suspect your case is due to strain associated with the chin ups. ...Read more

The cdc recommends at least 150 min./week of moderate or 75 min./week of vigorous exercise a week, as well as muscle-strengthening activities at least 2 days a week. More is even better but your level seems quite good. Keep up the good work!
