Dear Fen

There are many possible explanation for numbness in the toes and feet. If it is just in one foot, it may be that you have a lower back issue, maybe a nerve entrapment that will be felt as changes in sensation in the foot. If the problem persisits I would start with a physio or chiropractor. If not, a neurologist can do a nerve conductivity test to check how well the nerves are working.
