A little background. I am 21 and have been experiencing pain in both hips since middle school. I am 5'10 120lbs. I have been told I am very hyper mobile, especially through my legs. I have had growth plate issues in my knees and feet. I have always been active doing, long distance running, soccer, basketball, and tennis. I am a runner and have a runners build.

So it all started when I was playing soccer. I went for a kick and I heard a "snap". For the next few weeks walking was difficult and was never the same after that. It has happened 2 more times after that, once sprinting and another time kicking. This has occurred in both hips and each time this happens the immediate effect is more significant.
I have gone to 3 doctors and all have been unable to give a diagnosis. The exercises they have given have only seemed to make things worse.

Symptoms: By now I feel pain in pretty much everything I do. It is a daily problem. Running feels like I have ankle weights on. Holding my leg up, as a freeze frame of a running motion, is nearly impossible after a few seconds. Don't know if its related, but when I lay on my back and do a running motion I hear a small popping noise every time my leg goes down. Through high school I chose to run through the pain, which has probably led towards more problems.

Any insight? Any more information needed?
