I too have suffered some of the same ailments you are describing.
I had neck and right arm pains for some time after getting a new horn (MW 2145). I went to the doc and talked about it and his suggestions were to stretch the affected body parts before playing. That's not something I had thought of before playing but it sure has helped allot in the pain department. I also bought a padded strap that I use all the time now and I haven't had any pain for quite a while.
Just my 2 cents!
