Hello, welcome to just answer and thank you for your question.

Do you have this problem since birth?

So, are you flat footed on your left leg only? Any pain in your left knee and hip joints?

What about your right leg?

I am still available online to answer your queries after I get the above info.

Im not flat footed only now can't stand on my left toes.Right leg is ok except for pain in bum when walking any distance.Thanks

I think you should do an ray of the foot to exclude any changes in the joints of your foot.

Besides physiotherapy, you should perhaps also consult a chiropractor to improve the stability / movement of your toes, foot and also to improve your stance while walking.
