Hi, after reading your complaints, i think your the ligaments inside and around the knee had torn. For this you need to be completely examined by an orthopaedic surgeon. You may also need to undergo few investigations. In case you may require surgical correction.

If want to be able to run again, it is always better to meet an expert, in this case an Orthopedician. If at all what you are saying(frequently dislocating knee) turns out to be true, then you will need nothing short of a surgery. Before any Doctor decides on surgery, they will do a proper assessment with an MRI.
