I've been using my CPAP for approx 10 weeks now and coincidentally I have had some neck pain for about that time. I'm using a WISP mask with the standard harness. When I nod my head forward & back I get pain at the back of my skull and its in the same place where the wisp harness sits. It's not a 'wry' neck (from sleeping with neck in an awkward position). I feel that my harness is adjusted and positioned correctly.
Anyone else had this experience?

Have you tried reducing the tension on the bottom straps a little to see if it can be done without causing leaks???
I get something similar, where the strap passes over a facet joint or trigger point. There are a couple of devices around which are supposed to spread the strap pressure to relieve the problem. One is by CPAP Seal and another is Pad-a-cheek. Try Googling them. For what it's worth, I use a Pad-a-cheek FFM liner which I really like. I also tried the CPAP Seal gel liner which I didn't like at all - their strap liners might be more successful.
