In brief: Support Your Arch

Your foot needs support.
When one wears flats, all the pressure is in your arch.The supporting bone structures, tendons and muscles now need to fully support your feet all day and everyday.If you don't wear good supportive shoes and good arch supports, eventually the muscle, tendons and joints become fatigued and pain begins.Get back in to good supportive shoes and soon it should resolve.

In brief: Is there any wonder.

It sounds like you've correctly identified the problem. Get back into your normal shoe gear, but expect a few days of readjustment time, for the pain to resolve.
If concerns should arise, consult with a specialist.
