Nerve pain: This sounds like nerve pain, especially with the tingling toes. The most common cause would be radiating symptoms from nerve irritation/compression in the lumbar spine. A nerve conduction study and a MRI of the lumbar spine would be a good start if you haven't already had these. Of course, a thorough history and repeat physical exam with a specialist should precede these tests.
