They are symptoms of diseases of the peripheral nerves (peripheral neuropathy).

Possible situation: diabetic complication, peripheral artery disease, lumbar disc herniation, etc.. You need see a neurologist to determine the cause.
A temporary numbness in toe for a brief period of time is mostly triggered by some minor issue and it subsides on its own. Furthermore, it could be a symptom of nerve damage.

However, toe numbness and pain occurring together is one such problem that one should not be ignored. It can affect just one of the toes or all of them. The problem worsens further if the pain and numbness extend to the feet and ankle.
I have a middle toe that is numb and my left ankle is swollen.
I assume that the numb middle toe is also on the left foot. Possible causes include peripheral neuropathy, Vitamin B12 deficiency, chronic kidney disease, venous insufficiency, lumbar spinal stenosis, Lyme disease and gout.
