In brief: Possible

If your flat feet are severe it makes the ankles unstable and puts pressure on the ankle creating pain.

In brief: Abnormal function

"flat feet" can be structural, the way you were born, or functional, the way your foot works.
Flattening of the foot puts extra stress on the ankles. This can lead to irritation and inflammation. Using a good stiff soled shoe and extra arch support can improve foot function and decrease stress on the ankle and other structures. See your foot specialists for an evaluation. Dr l.
