comment Lower back pain relief
Josh, you are welcome. @Info, I’ve used and benefitted from kinesiotape, so I included it in my answer. The skeptic's link sites advertising claims that were not substantiated, primarily because the studies were not “sufficiently robust”, had limitations including small sample sizes, some lacked sham taping and some studied KT in conjunction with other therapies. But despite their limitations, they do show statistically significant increased joint range of motion and decreased pain. For many of us, if it works, it works, placebo or not. Scientific "proof" may also have its own limitations.

I agree with @DForck42. Knowing what exercises you are doing will give a better idea of what you may be overlooking or overdoing.

comment How to get rid of nerve pinch in shoulder?
Good luck. If you study the shoulder before you see someone, you can ask better questions and get better information from them. Find a good pro - sadly all pros are not alike.

comment Chest pain while running over 160 bpm
Yes you should have it checked out by your doctor. Pain or pressure in the chest esp. during exercise may be a warning sign. Only your doctor can tell you if it is a health problem or not. The NIH describes chest pain or discomfort: "This involves uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center or left side of the chest that can be mild or strong. This discomfort or pain often lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back."
