What causes severe headache and numbness in the toes?

I am a 30 year old female who keeps fit. I keep on waking up with a headache ( no alcohol involved) and am getting alot of pins and needles in my hands when holding them up even for short periods of time like sending a text message. I have also had a numbness in some of my toes now for about 2 months.

You need to see a doctor for blood work to see what the exact cause is
