Thank you for posting your query.

The most likely diagnosis could be migraine with mild cervical spondylosis.

This can explain stiff neck, dizziness, headache, etc.

MRI is often normal in these conditions.

Treatment would involve physiotherapy with neck extension exercises.

In addition, medications such as amitriptilyne would be useful.

symptoms may occur with that too.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,
