Charlene, it’s difficult to make a diagnosis, as your symptoms are fairly widespread and non-specific. The face symptoms sound like they might be due to a trapped nerve, but that won’t explain the symptoms in the toe. I still think it won’t be a bad idea to have x-rays of your neck taken, but I suppose the best would be to see a neurologist and have it sorted out. Good luck.
