Heavy is the head...: Your head is an immense object. Weights at least 15 to 20 pounds, as it's a large ball of bone filled with water and "other stuff".

Getting a better posture, moving around, and changing activity will help. ...Read more
Myofascitis: When flexing your neck you are stretching the fasciae covering the upper/mid trapezius muscles. These muscles connect to the mid thoracic spine.

Be observant: Twitches of muscle occur with magnesium deficiency. Magnesium can be lost with exposure to loud sounds and also with use of stimulants like coffee. Chronic stress coming from back pain could also increase magnesium losses. Topical magnesium oil can be applied on the skin in painful areas to see if magnesium deficiency in the underlying muscle is causing the tightness or pain. ...Read more
An adrenalin effect: Nervousness or anxiety releases epinepherine or Adrenalin which energizes muscles getting you ready to fight or run. Meds like oral steroids or water pills as well as caffiene can cause hyper-sensitive muscle fibers too.
