Are Crowns supposed to move and hurt when I eat food?

“I went to a dentist in November. He did two root canals and left them open for two months. Then, when I returned, he shaved them down and sent me home. I was in throbbing pain for a week; the office had a four-day weekend; I went to another dentist who wanted to pull my teeth I said no. The pain was from the tooth next to the other two posts. Somehow it had a chip; he did a 3rd root canal, but I asked why it hurt when I got food stuck and why are they lost. His answer’s my tooth that’s loose inside the crown.”

Porcelain crowns on your teeth are not supposed to move or be loose. If your dental crowns move, then there is the possibility that your tooth is loose, OR the Crown cement is leaking, or not enough glue!
There are times when the teeth are over-prepared, or a proper crown build-up was needed before having your crown fabricated; hence the crown is now loose; since there is no retention on your prepared tooth, all this must be checked by your dentist.
Go back to your dentist so that they can alleviate the problem.
