Ok. First of off, take those shoes back to the store or just get rid of them. Ill fitting shoes can create problems for you if you continue to wear them. Wearing the tight shoes, and the way it sounds... sounds like you may have pinched or compressed a nerve in your foot or your toe and because its pinched or compressed, it has made you loose sensation in the affected toe. My best reccomendation to you is to first of all, throw away those shoes, rub the affected toe to stimulate circulation and excersise the affected to by different movements. Depending on which toe it is, crinkle your toes back and forth and just wiggle them about. You should regain sensation in the affected toe, and if you dont then I would seek the advice of a podiatrist (a foot doctor) for further help. But I honestly believe amputation is not the case...

Sounds like you put too much pressure on your toe. It's probably a pinched nerve. I would expect the feeling to slowly return over the next couple of days. As long as the skin looks healthy, I wouldn't be concerned yet. If the feeling doesn't return in a few days, or the skin begins to look unhealthy, it's time for a doctor's visit. I think you'll find women have encountered this problem more than a few times due to some stupid shoe choices. You're probably just fine.

Sounds like the nerve was temporary injured, but the feeling will come back slowly. In the meantime, those shoes you were wearing...I'd consider getting rid of them asap. Next time you buy shoes, make sure they are properly sized. Go at the end of the day and bring a pair of socks you usually wear so you get the appropriate shoesize. The feeling will come back and it takes time so be patient. No, nobody is going to take your toe off! :D

Stop pretending that university means something and realise that it means something very important. You have an opportunity to really change your life through education, a chance that many people would love to have and you don't seem to appreciate it. Life is sometimes monotonous and will get you down but if you are always walking around with a head full of negativity it will not be any easier. You mention that there are obstacles in the way of you achieving what you want but without an education and a good job behind you then the obstacles will be even bigger so pick your head up and try to take it one day at a time.
