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.

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

Exercise early!: It is better to exercise earlier in the day, particularly before supper. This will help promote sleep. If you exercise before going to bed, your adrenergic system will be aroused, your body's metabolic rate will be heightened. All of these will interfere with deep, restful sleep! Also, do not eat before going to sleep. ...Read more

What quantity of push ups should I do everyday?

Quantity of Push Ups: As a podiatrist, I emphasize a 3 time a week gradual progressive strengthening program for the feet, ankles, and lower extremity. I assume that this would apply to do pushups. We need the recovery time. Never push through pain, as you really want to get to fatigue, then stop. This way you will have gained some, and can continue to progress. Dr Rich Blake ...Read more
