Numb toe

Numb toes or numbess in the toes is a loss of feeling and sensation in an area but can also have signs of tingling or burning. It can affect the nerves or blood vessels in connection to the given area. It usually comes on through nerve compression or restriction of circulation from poorly fitting shoes. Nerve damage can occur following injury or being exposed to cold conditions for long periods of time for example frostbite and immersion foot (trench foot).

Other conditions to consider include diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, Guillain-Barré syndrome, Raynaud's phenomenon, stroke, vasculitis and a nerve irritation in the lower back through radiculopathy. Bunions can also cause numbness to the toe or toes due to the irritation of the nerves from the skeletal deformity that arises.
