Get thee to a podiarist (foot person). They'll take a look and work out what's up (or down!).

You need to see a consultant with a special machine that measures where the pressure is on your foot, and will be able to prescribe inner soles to help you balance out your feet.

Go and see your GP and ask for a referral.

Do it soon - if you really have fallen arches, you can put your knees/hips/back right out of balance and suffer a lot in later life.
