Thanks for query,
You have not mentioned your age.
If toy are elderly then it is possible that you might have degenerative changes in your lumbo sacral region causing pressure or irritation of nerve giving rise to numbness on the great toe.
Go for diabetes check up also.
Go for x ray lumbo sacral region.
Ok and bye.
