Head injury, dizziness, headaches. MRI of brain, mild micro vascular ischemic changes. Cause of worry?

I had a fall after being hit in the head and neck with a 250-300lb piece of metal. I have been fainting; been constantly dizzy with daily dizziness and headaches ever since my work related accident on June 6, 2012. In the MRI of my Brain the Department of Radiology noted that i have a mild chronic microvascular ischemic changes. Now don t misunderstand me, the doctor did not say this was caused by the June injury, but it was just noted in the report and was wondering if I have anything to worry about.

Dear micro ischemic events aren't related to your head injury.They probably are caused from chronic illness such as arterial hypertension, diabetes or dislipidemia.You should take contact with your doctor(internist) to exlude those desease.Anyway if brain MRI is normal you don't have any reason to be worried.Wish you all the best
