TPTD?: You write as if it's only one foot. The most common cause of unilateral (one side) flatfoot in an adult is called Tibialis Posterior Tendon Dysfunction. Without treatment, it usually gets worse over time. See a board certified podiatrist-contact ABFAS.org to find one by you, or a foot/ankle trained orthopedist.

TPTD Likely: Agree with previous answer with regards to Tibialis Posterior Tendon Dysfunction. Seek the advice of a Podiatrist for a definitive diagnosis. Please understand me though that seeking a board certified podiatrist or physician has no bearing on the qualifications or knowledge of the doctor.
