My toes have been alternating in a painful numbness. what it may be ?

Symptoms: My toes have been alternating in a painful numbness , especially in the morning. Today the entire front of my foot was hurting to the point of limping around. I believe I was bit by a spider 3 or more days ago, but I really haven't noticed any major redness or swelling (maybe a very small spot on my 2nd toe). It feels a little better when I start walking around.

Welcome to Healthcare magic
we need to know your age and diabetic status. It may be an early diabetic foot if you are a diabetic. However, if there is a small redness as you suggest, it could be a minor injury else insect bite. May be worth consulting a doctor and get examined.
Take care
