Several things!: Could be activity related-what did you the day or two before. Are shoes supportive and good fit. If the pain does last for more than a few days, it may represent arthritis. Many types affect the toes and mtps. See your doctor if it lasts. Temporary benefits may be had from aleve (naproxen) or motrin.

Numb toes: Agree with dr namey. Also consider neuropathy or referred sciatic pain.
