Brief Answer:
MRI results not that bad.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns. I've reviewed the attached report.

It is sphenoidal sinusitis what was found in the MRI, so, not to be worried about it.

It seems to be inactive.

The infarction is reported to be tiny and remote, it may be a perivascular enlarged space too, and, in both cases, it is without any clinical importance.

In conclusion, I don't see anything to worry about regarding these MRI results. I'd suggest considering vertigo (benign positional paroxysmal vertigo) disorder as the possible conditions in your case.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
