zapping pain on top of foot, numb big toe

About a month ago, I noticed that when I slightly pressed down on a certain area on the top of my foot it sent a shooting, zapping, burning pain straight down toward my big toe. That has since subsided, but now the top of my big toe is numb. Movable, but numb for at least 2 wks now.

I have high arches (both feet) and am 40 pounds overweight from a recent pregnancy.

Any ideas? How urgent is it that I see a doctor?

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
