In brief: Irritated nerve

Assuming that your symptoms are localized to top of left foot then likely cause of your symptoms is pinched or irritated sciatic nerve any where from low back to the foot.
The name of the nerve changes below the knee to peroneal nerve.

Could be the deep peroneal nerve on the top of your foot which supplies between the first and second toes
Dr. Chuc Dang
The Deep peroneal nerve goes into the 1st toeweb. The medial, intermediate & lateral dorsal cutaneous nerves are branches of the peroneal nerve.

In brief: Many possibilities

Numbness can occur from various reasons.
Some potential causes include vitamin deficiency, nerve damage, nerve compression, alcohol over consumption, side effects of different medications, or as a result of different systemic medical conditions such as diabetes. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the diagnosis. Treatment is based on the diagnosis.
