vertebral artery ends in pica

For years I have had left-sided facial pain that seems to originate in my ear, feeling of fullness in the ear, dizziness until my ENT did chemical ablation to the balance nerve in that ear which destroyed the balance in that side & caused oscilospia and, of course, problems with balance. After having MR of brain and neck it said "small left vertebeal artery probably ending in a pica". What does this mean and what symptoms can it cause? This scan was not done by my ENT and I haven't shown it to him yet.

This discussion is related to right vertebral artery hypoplasia.
