Exclamation Head in Air?

So I have a 17.1hh thoroughbred he is pretty sensitive ( surprising right? )
Anyways when I lunge him or when he's running in his paddock he puts his head up as high as he can, and its weird because its not like he shakes it or is being silly he just puts it up there and keeps it there. I have a picture that Ill upload later, he actually looks like a giraffe
The reason I'm wondering if anyone knows what this could be is because I think it has something to do with him being in pain, as he has done a complete 360 on me this year and is unrideable.
Let me know if you know anything

If you think it is pain related then I suggest you get your vet out to check his back/neck out and then maybe have a chiro. Out to adjust him and see if that helps. If not I would say its just him playing a lot of our horses put their heads way up when we let them out to run and play in the arena.

Yes of course he is going to the vet this week! I was just wondering if anyone has ever delt with this before or something similar.
I'll post a picture, we were maybe thinking it was either his spine that was sore or something in his throat.
