In brief: See your physician

There is limited good evidence that joint hypermobility causes back pain.
Although there is some thought that due to increased laxity, individuals may be at increased risk of certain types of injuries involving the back. With symptoms such as "electric shock pain", there is concern of a nerve related problem and would warrant further investigation by a physiatrist, neurosurgeon or orthopedist.

In brief: Radiculopathy vs hip

This should definitely be evaluated further. You could have a primary hip issue or diagnosis causing the pain or radicalopathy which is due to lumbar disc disease impinging a nerve.
consideration for pyriformis syndrome also.Workup by a Sports Medicine, PMR, or orthopedist would likely include imaging of both areas. Physical therapy with an emphasis on core muscles may be a first line treatment.

In brief: Suspect trigger point

The success of treatment of hypermobility is an exercise program.
Your pain sounds like a trigger point from the side of the hip. This type of pain is not a serious medical condition but it can hurt. The better Musculoskeletal tone will help prevent this triggering . Triggering means the pain will shoot up from the location to someplace else in the body. Sometimes trigger point injections are used
