You have mentioned in your querry that you have numb feeling in your little toe when you put on heels,so first thing you have to do is to avoid using heeled shoe.further you can take high protein diet and above that i would like to suggest you one medicine for your further help.You can take hypericum 30 4 tabs 3 times in day for 15 days and report back,

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Jasvinder Singh's  Response
This looks like some nerve compression which is presenting with numbness. You have to get a NCV( nerve conduction velocity) test done to assess the damage to the nerves.

Till that time, wear flat slippers and take some vitamin B12 which is helpful in nerve injuries. If symptoms persist then you have to get your blood sugar levels also checked as it can be due to peripheral neuropathy in diabetes also.
Hope it helps you. Regards.
