Suggestions: Would visit a physiatrist and try to localize cause of your discomfort. Meds are merely palliative, and will coverup but not cure. Physical therapy may be useful, and eventually a back exercise program will help.

Can a pinched nerve cause body to feel tingly and weak. Had dislocated knees and shoulder. Not recent though. Can my chiropractor help solve this?
They treat nothing: That's the all-purpose delusion of chiropractic: Every problem is a "pinched nerve": Not just back pain, but everything: Depression, impotence, constipation, deafness, acne, flat feet, asthma, allergies, you name it. As a neurologist, I'm here to tell you: Your chiropractor has no more real knowledge about the human body, health or disease than you do. Chiropractic is quackery with a capital Q. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
One of my spinal chords in my lower back is dislocated and is pushing on my nerves, causing me a lot of pain, is a disk surgery recommended?

Hold off on surgery, it's always the last resort and you're very young. ...Read more

Can you please explain what 3 lumber dislocated discs are because my MRI shows 3 on my spine thank you.?
Not all discs equal!: The MRI scan is a very sensitive test. As people age it becomes more likely that some sort of disc damage, or desiccation (drying and shrinking) will be found. Many of these findings are not clinically significant, i.e. Not a cause of pain. Findings such as a herniated disc (a disc that has been squeezed out of it's normal location) that is pinching a nerve or the spinal cord is more credible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
