A flatfoot may not cause symptoms or signs other than the change in the shape of the foot. When symptoms do occur, these can include
- leg cramps,
- muscle pain (aching or fatigue) in the foot or leg,
- pain in the arch, ankle, heel or outside of the foot, and
- pain when walking.
Other associated symptoms can include changes in gait (how you walk) or toe drift (front part of the foot and toes point outward).
