Not sure I'll be much help, except to say that you're not alone. I started playing bass again after a 15 year hiatus, and I too get pain from my wrist which goes up into my left shoulder. Might be that I was hooking my hand too much, so I've tried adjusting my position. I guess in summary I've concluded that I need more exercise (weight training to build up the muscles in my arms), and that I should find a good teacher to teach me proper technique so I don't hurt myself. Getting back into it in one's late 30's is a lot different than playing regularly at age 19. Have to watch out for tendonitis, etc.
