Flat in itself doesn't create much issues your pain depends on the activities or sports you indulge into. In flat foot you get pain in your calf because that gets stiff easily that leads to tight hamstring and change in length of other muscles is obvious. That leads to pain in back. Their is also pain in the transverse arch of the foot so you need arch support for flat foot and silicon insoles for cushion. You need to stretch your calf and strengthen your peroneus muscles for ankle stability. Rest you need to see a physio for guidance.

You are missing with lots of details like toes deformity, knee joint functioning, patellar shift, pelvic tilt and many more. Definately flat foot is not only the cause for all these problems. And even your occupational assessment is important here in this case.
And majorly, avoid pain killer tablet/injections as it will only heal your symptom not the root of cause.
Next Steps
Have your assessment done by physiotherapist.
Health Tips
-Silicon medial wedge for flat foot.
-Toe separator(If your toe is deviated laterally)
-Intrinsic foot muscle exercise(search in youtube)
- Avoid standing on foot with out ward rotation.

this may be due to prolong standing and drinking less water. stretching for calf muscle and applying orthosis in footwear will help to reduce pain. if water intake is less then drink 3-4 litter water in a day. do consult to your near by physio.
Health Tips
avoid prolong standing.

Ensure that you maintain an appropriate posture while working or sitting or walking....Take frequent stretch breaks and drink lots of water...Discontinue using pillow while sleeping straight...Do not lift heavy objects, especially after bending down....Eat a healthy wholesome meal which should satisfy your minerals and proteins requirement...take over the counter pain medications..There are many causes for leg pain including Achilles tendinitis, varicose veins, deep vain thrombosis They're more likely to happen if you're inactive for long periods, like on a long flight or car ride. You're also at risk if you're overweight, or you smoke, or take certain medications....This can happen when the arteries in your legs become damaged and hardened....some other causes are herniated discs,sciatica, stenosis of spinal canal etc...I would suggest you to consult nearest physician for clinical examination if needed they will only refer you to concerned specialists.
