An uncomfortable position in the drops is often the result of a stiff lower back, try stretch out a bit. Your saddle position (too far back) could also make using the drops uncomfortable. Riding in the drops becomes more neccasary in windy conditions, high speeds and particularly decending. I have seen riders reluctant to use the drops on steep or winding decents and compromising control. I wouldn't change bars but look at your bike setup as this may sort out the problem, also experiment riding in the drops, there is seldom a need to ride in the drops for any significant time anyway
