Hello XXXXXXX
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Microangiopathy means involvement of small terminal branches of blood vessels supplying in brain.
It can be due to age, hypertension, dyslipidemia, blood sugar and may be vasculitic process.
Some amount is commonly found with age in most person but if it's more then evaluation by blood investigation required.
You can upload pdf of images of Mri for analysis.
You can get blood pressure measurement, blood sugar, liver and kidney function test, lipid profile, vitamin B12, ANA profile and compliment levels.
Headache seems not to be related to this.

Brief Answer:
Prognosis depends upon the cause

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX The cause of microangiopathy should be found out by proper investigtions.
Most of the diseases causing it can be treated or suppressed by medications.
Microangiopathy is not dangerous as such, as it is a chronic process, but may lead to stroke if not treated in time.
