Base of Skull/Neck Pain on Longer Rides?

On some recent longer (for me anyways, say 30-35 miles) rides I've started getting some pain at the base of my skull from looking up while riding. I'd like to do some longer rides as I get in better shape, but this is putting a damper on things.

I'm about 6'3" tall, riding a large sized Fuji Sportif that seems to fit pretty well, so I'm not exactly in a super aero position while riding. I'd estimate my bars are about 3/4" below my seat.

Is this normal? Any tips to combat it?
