Ever get a feeling of being shocked or bitten but you weren't? Sometimes, if it's in your toes, it will cause your toes to go numb for a while after. Very odd and curious, what, if you've had it or know of it, causes it?

Stress can cause electric shock sensations. I'm not sure about the numbness, however.

Electric shock feeling, zapped, buzzed, jolted - anxiety symptoms

I'm not sure about the shocking sensation, but I think numbness is due to a lack of circulation (of blood) in your foot. After you get circulation back in your foot, you can get a sharp, prickly, tingly sensation in your foot.

I usually get a numb foot when I sit down on one side of my butt to long or if I tie my shoes really tight and I start doing cardio. If I'm sitting down I'll get up and stretch my legs or just move my legs back and forth to get some circulation. If i'm doing cardio I'll stop and losen my shoe.

I think I know what you are talking about..the pain hits on the top of your foot just below your toes?? Could be a multitude of things and probably you should see a doctor. Mine is arthritis and if I step just right, it sends an electric type shock across the top of my foot..old age too I would think...at least in my case it is! LOL

Pinched nerve? Neuropathy?

Mine is caused by neuropathy. But, yes, you need to see a doctor before it gets worse.
