    C1 nerve will not cause problems. It is too small and does not contribute to many symptoms. The C2 nerve or greater occipital nerve will cause headaches. Spinal cord compression however will cause the other noted symptoms you list.

    It is common to see a “subluxation” of C1-2 on an MRI. Generally, this finding is a “false positive”. This means it is a finding that is a “nothing burger” or not a pathological finding. The C1-2 joint is designed to rotate up to 50% of the total rotation of the neck.

    A dens with a sclerosis (thickened bone) is not a real problem generally. Thickened bone can be caused by abnormal wear but this area does not typically exhibit increased wear so these findings can generally be ignored.

    I am not concerned about this report.

    HLA-B27 is a locus on chromosome 6 and presents antigenic peptides (proteins encoded on the cell surface) to T cells. HLA-B27 is associated with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and spondyloarthropathies (inflammation of the spine and joints). Spondyloarthropathies include Psoriatic arthritis, the arthritis associated with Crohn’s disease and Reiter’s syndrome as well as AS. See my section on spondyloarthropathies on this website.
