What might be causing my joint pain and other symptoms?

I'm a 16 year old girl and ive been dealing with worsening joint pain for years. My doctor doesn't know what it is and has just brushed it off as "growing pains" for years or suggested I was making it up for attention. Over the last three months or so my pain has only gotten worse as well as other related issues. My pain is in many of my joints including my fingers, knees, hips, ankles, wrists and shoulders. I also have dislocated and partially dislocated my shoulders and hips several times but they usually just pop back into place with a little bit of pressure. Ever since I was really little ive had problems with dislocations and frequent sprains and other injuries. I've also always been able to bend my joints in weird ways but I'm not sure if that's related at all. Anyway it's just been getting so much worse lately and I'm desperate to at least have a suggestion to look into. Thanks.

Try another doc, then write back. There are a few possibilities but no one can diagnose you from here.
