You're just getting into barre chords, aren't you.

If so, just practice. It will hurt like hell for a while, just like most things on the guitar, but you'll eventually get it.

Yep. It helps to try further up the neck a bit so there is less tension compared to near the nut.

Just take it easy and do not over-do it
