Bones out-of-joint? Mostly in feet

Bones in my feet, and sometimes my legs, seem to slip out of joint from time to time. It seems to happen most when there is a sudden drop in temperature. Warm water seems to help some. I can see by looking at my feet that a bone is out of place. For example, a toe will be twisted out of position. Within about five minutes, the bone goes back to where it should be and the pain goes away.
My main concern is that I have never had the pain go away unless I am in a standing or sitting position. I wonder what will happen if I should be bedridden and the bone goes out of joint.
I've looked at a lot of articles on arthritis, but none of them seem to address this. I don't have any aching or swelling, just a pain that feels like something is not where it belongs. Also, I've looked at hypermobile joints, and those are supposedly painless. I am double-jointed, if that means anything.
