Hi,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.

Small gliotic foci in striato-thalamic region may be due to some old head injury or old clot(ischemic insult) in the brain.It is not the cause of giddiness.
Regarding adenoidal enlargement- an ENT specialist should be consulted and even that should not cause giddiness.Please upload the report here so that I can advise you better on this query.

Hope that helps.I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
