Just thought this might help with the wrist pain. In addition to guitar I play lots of classical piano - last semester I was having a lot of pain in my right wrist due to some tension problems. It also hurt when I played the guitar to the point where I thought I was going to have to quit. My piano professor showed me a stretch that has helped a lot, and I'm playing both instruments again with little or no pain. Put both elbows on a table or flat surface with your hands in the air and make a fist. Then slowly pivot the fists down as far as they will go so they make a right angle with your arms. Then, slowly move the fists from side to side to stretch out the wrists. She said to start with only 1 or 2 times and gradually increase the number and to NEVER rush - move slowly. The opposite stretch is to open the hand with fingers extended and bend the wrist backwards as far as possible and then slowly pivot as far as possible in either direction. The stretch is supposed to help with carpal tunnel and tendonitis. I do the stretch both before and after I play - it's really helped me a lot. Hope that helps!
