My big toe has been numb for a few days after wearing heels. I don't have diabetes or back pain. What can I do before going to the doctor?

In brief: Let it relax for
A while and wear open sheos to relieve the pressure on it and take some Motrin and warm soaks for the foot.

In brief: Pressure
Try changing your shoes to some that are wider in the toes and have a lower heel.
It sounds like your shoes are tight and pressing agains your toe.

In brief: Numbness in toe
You should avoid wearing those high heels for a while and if the sensation on that toe does not return, then you need an evaluation by a podiatrist.
