  • This is very interesting and makes me curious. The toes have the nerve endings, so I'm wondering if you have a pinched nerve somewhere. Have you ever seen a chiropractor? Have you fallen or somehow done some different kind of exercise or movement?

  • Could it be a spinal problem? It would be a good idea to get checked, so if necessary you could get treatment.

  • Did you go out with high dancin' shoes?
    =)
    When I go out and I wear my heels for prolonged periods of time my toes will go numbfor a few days.
    If it doesn't go away i nthe nexy 4 days, maybe get an X-Ray done to see whats up.

  • Could be a lot of things....beginning sign of diabetes, pinched nerve in your back or leg, wearing too tight of shoes, etc. If it lasts more than a week, see a doc.

  • I had 2 toes on the one foot that sound like this. I went to my chiropractor and told him the symptoms and he gave me an adjustment. The tingling went away. If you are not properly aligned your nerves will get pinched and can cause all kinds of weird sensations in places that you would never think came from "your back". Try a chiropractor!

  • Are you pregnant? When I was pregnant I couldn't feel 3 of my fingers on my right hand for the last 3 months. Anyways, you might want to check with your doctor.
