Random question....

I’ve had 4 or 5 neurology appointments now and every time they’ve scraped the bottom of the feet. So my question is, because I know what your toes are supposed to do in terms of what’s considered a normal response I actively make the effort to give that response. If my toes were destined to go up and fan out which is considered abnormal would I be able to prevent it?? Possibly the most bizarre question but I’ve been wondering about it.

I don’t think you can ‘fake’ your reflexes. So I doubt you can make them do something other than what they do naturally. I imagine neurologists are taught what is a reflex and what is not.

You could do yourself a diservice because a deliberate deception invites suspicion regardless of motive and your neurologist might think you are trying to fake an abnormal reflex
