Numbness at the tip and bottom of big toes, feeling is noticeable only on touching the toes. What could be the cause and remedy?

Hi, I am having an issue with both of my big toes they are numb at the very tip and the bottom it s been about 24 hours since it began, I have tested to see if it was due to circulation by pressing and watching how quickly it changes back to the normal color and thy seem fine, it s a pins and needles sleepy feeling it just feels more annoying then anything, I found that the numb feeling is only really noticeable when I touch my toes on something or when in the bath and I touch the edge of the tub, what could it be and should I see a doctor?

Numbness in both toes simultaneous means the problem is somewhere in spine most probably.compression of spinal cord may cause such symptoms. Other possible common cause may be diabetes. U dont need to bother much if it started only 1 day back.start some exercise if u r having sedentry will help.also take multivitamin methylcobalamine and nerve tonic like pregabalin.
