Raise the action a bit. Without seeing the guitar and your setup (trem, neck bow, etc....) that would be the easiest solution. At least that helped me out.

Based on your description, it sounds like your neck is is back bowed (convex). But, as stated earlier, that would have to be seen to know for sure. You may just need a set up. I'm one to recommend using the change of seasons as a guide to how often a guitar should be set up but in reality the actual climate factor, cuts of wood used on the guitar, and amount of use will really determine how often the guitar will actually need a set-up.
