It could be a result of wearing ridiculously high heels or maybe you injured it while you were out and the 'numbing agent' you were ingesting has now worn off. If you have a tingle, that's encouraging.. wear sensible shoes..

I've never worn silly high heels and I wouldn't recommend them at all either.

I have never worn high heels that were anything other than silly, but that's not the point.
If this doesn't sort itself out in a day or two I think you ought to take your feet to the doctor (which is easier than visiting the doc but leaving your feet behind).

It sounds like you have some damage to the nerve, I have done it myself before after wearing stupidly high heels!!! If feels like your arm or hand does if you have been sleeping on it, numb and tingly??? It should start to resolve itself in a few days, mine usually went after a week, if it gets worse, spreads further,becomes painful or doesn't improve then go see your Doctor :)
