There's 2 different types of pain one encounters while playing the guitar, one kind which you feel when you're learning something new and which shows you that you're improving on that area, and the other type of pain which means you're in deep shit, careful when pushing those wrists and fingers, too much can lead to permanent damage, consistently do warmup exercises and yes, as debankan said, stretch your fingers using your hand, it helps.
