In brief: Many possibilities
With a history of hip dislocations it is important to understand why.
Sometimes hips are dislocated related to position in the womb. However, bilateral hip dislocations are more unusual and may be a sign of an underlying condition. Low muscle tone, excessive joint flexibility, or nerve problems can be related to hip dislocation. I would see a neurologist to rule out one of those condiitions.

In brief: Flat feet by itself
Can cause foot pain.
That may be helped by arch supports. Also if your hips have had problems your gait may be abnormal and when that happens the results can be knee, ankle, or foot pain. Also i would see your doctor and discuss xrays since osteoarthritis can be a cause of your pain but labs may be completely normal but can be seen on xray. A podiatry consult may help.
