CPAP machine and humidity setting ?

How do you know whether you need to set the humidity higher or lower on your CPAP machine? My neck has been hurting quite a bit lately which is usually sinus related during the winter time when the house gets dry. Because my throat hasn't been dry and didn't associate my neck hurting with needing more humidity. My neck was killing me this morning and I went back to bed and turned the humidity on the CPAP to as high as it will go (4) and my neck wasn't perfect but felt a lot better. Even though there is still plenty of humidity in the air this time of the year and my air is only set at 10, could I still need to have the humidity turned up on my cpap machine? I had it on 1.5 for a while but still had the same issues.
