Several questions... Is this normal? Expected? Or is it a symptom of poor technique?
I've read multiple articles on prone shooting, but no formal instruction.
you have to adjust your headrest<cheek rest> propely.
aim at target. close the eyes, take 3 breath. pause. open eyes. if your head is on scope on the same point <up down> your cheek rest is properly setup.
you have sore back neck pain, because your head is not resting on rifle stock properly.
