Need Serious Help with knees

Hi i'm a new member and i hope that someone can help me diagnose my problem. ok here i go, i'm a 29 yr old female and ever since a little girl i been have problems walking up stairs,curbs, and running. Whenever i try to walk up stairs i have to hold on tight to the rails or else i will fall. i cant bend my knees to much or else my legs give out. I have poor stability also. I been to a neuologist that performed many test for lupus,diabetes, MRIs of my knees & spine. thankfully everything came back negative. i went to a podiatrist to see if my instability had anything to do with my feet. he said my feet are fine but maybe my ligaments were to long. I am double jointed in my ankles. To make matters worse i have broken my tibia and fibia twice this year. with saying that i'm in deperate need in finding whats wrong with me. when i was a kid i did have to use metal braces for my legs, to make them straight. the doctor took them off since he said i didnt need them anymore. any help would be appriciated
