That bit of pain could be your pinky falling in line! I'd say take a break, no point in doing yourself an injury.
If you're so inclined, this book by one of my favourite musicians Sean Malone, is absolutely fantastic for learning a bit of theory. It's geared towards bassist, but i think it's a great read for anyone wanting to learn some really good, clear and concise music theory. I found myself playing until my arms hurt and then picking this up for half an hour while what you did was fresh in the head was a great way to absorb info i'd never have learnt otherwise.
Getting that bit of theory down for me turned the fretboard into a lot less daunting thing to be near and turned aimless noodlings into noodlings with a target
