In brief: Hypermobility synd

You may have been told you are "double jointed.
" then, you may have hypermobility syndrome, which could cause early-onset knee osteoarthritis, subluxations or dislocations, which could certainly cause poblems you describe. There are medical conditions, which can cause hypermobile joints, which include marfan syndrome, ehlers-danlos syndrome and osteogenesis imperfecta. In any case, seek care!

In brief: Unusual symptoms

"won't straighten out" sounds as if one's leg is stiff and in a bent position.
"too elastic" sounds as if one's leg is loose. These symptoms appear to be in contradiction, but due to the number of questions you've asked, it appears as if you may be in distress. Best to go see a doc to examine you and ask more details in order to best help you. Can't do that in the net. Info is too limited.
