sooooo.....this is all prollies my fault but back when i was young and foolish, i kinda decided to bend back one of the contacts on the selector switch of my epiphone sg, thus creating a dandy killswitch instead of the rythm pup, which i never use(d) however,

another time, i was altering the height of it, and i wound it too far and it came off one screw, putting it at an angle,

now whenever i use it (the killswitch failed btw) i get horrible squealing feedback with distortion,

which is the likely cause do ya think?

all help appreciated

Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Remove the pickup, and then replace everything back the way it should be. If you're not sure how to do that, take it to a repair shop.
