I had this issue for quite some time...went to a doctor and they had me go to a local shoe store. It was the type of shoe I was wearing. Although I felt no discomfort with the shoes, they were actually not so great for my foot style. Try a local shoe store ( I used a local running shoe store as they had some pretty neat tools for diagnosing your foot/walking style). It took about 3-4 days in a new pair of shoes, and voila! No more numb pinkie toe!! Now, I notice right away when I am wearing the wrong shoe...my pinkie toe will go numb within just a few minutes.
Hopefully it's something this simple for you as well!! Wishing you luck!
