MRI finding of hypointense illness suggest a healed lesion as such no further action is needed. Your present symptom of giddiness and vomiting perhaps are not related to it. You have a good evaluation by a neurologist and in all probability, we will arrive at if any significance can be attached.

I suggest if you attach full report of MRI and relevant MRI films so that I can answer you more specifically.
