Blood pressure check: If the stroke was so small it could not be found on ct scan, but had to be discovered by mri, it is probably not significant to cause any symptoms. What is significant about strokes like this is that they are often related to high blood pressure. High blood pressure can also cause headaches, and may be the link to your headache. You need to see a doctor.
