If it's the tingling of more than one toe, then it's 'my toes' tingling'.
If it's the tingling of one toe, then it's 'my toe's tingling'
If you want to say that one toe is tingling, it's 'my toe's tingling'.
If it's more than one toe that's tingling and you want to contract, you could say 'my toes're tingling' (I'd only use that in direct speech, if at all), as Relache has said, but I think 'toes are tingling' reads better, as Lobobrandon has said.
If you are referring to the tingling of all your toes (plural possessive), then the apostrophe is correctly placed (but awkward), but the whole statement is a sentence fragment.
My first reaction was to say it is "slang" for my toe"is". My second reaction is that in order for it to be plural it would have to have an "are".
Now I just don't know, it might depend on who I was talking to,.
If you mean to say one toe is tingling, it would be "My toe's tingling."
If you mean multiple toes, the correct phrase is "My toes're tingling."
If you mean one toe is tingling, and you're talking about that, it's fine. E.g. "My toes' tingling seemed to be getting worse."
As Relache said:
If it's one toe, you're basically saying: my toe is tingling (My toe's tingling).
I'm not sure if you can write toes're (I'd rather keep it as toes are).
It does not matter how many toes that you are talking about, you cannot pluralize toes that way. For one toe you would say, "My toe is tingling." For 2+ then you would say, "My toes are tingling."
David, clearly not everyone answering in this thread is familiar with writing dialog and/or informal speech, so obviously you will want to consider the formality or informality of what you are writing when you pick the best phrasing for your sentence.
The sentence is wrong whether it is one toe or all toes.
If it is one toe, the sentence would be: My toe is tingling or My toe tingles.
If it is more than one toe, the sentence would be: My toes are tingling.
