Numbness in the toes can be caused by nerve damage, injury to the foot or be a result of poor circulation due to diseases such as peripheral vascular disease or diabetes; low back pain associated with radiculopathy or pinched nerves can also generate toe numbness, according to MedicineNet. Generally, conditions that affect the blood vessels that transport blood to the foot or nerves runningthrough the foot can cause numbness.
