There is no one right answer to this question. The best mouse for someone varies depending on specific body structure and mechanics. The best thing to do is to try out several different kinds. That said, here are other things to consider:

Is the computer keyboard and mouse at the proper ergonomic height for you?

Regardless of what kind of mouse you use, repetitive motion causes injury. Take regular breaks from the computer to stretch out your hands, wrists, arms, neck and so forth.

Change the hand you use the mouse with. I have done so.

As Orange Blossom says.

You say your wrist is starting to hurt. Is it only the wrist or are your fingers going numb or tingly?

Best position is that your lower arm is supported and parallel to the floor. Your hand should be at the same height as your arm and be supported. What this means is that your chair should be adjusted for height so your lower arm is at the same height as the surface as the mouse. Also that the arm is not hanging for support from the shoulder or pressing the arm upwards against the shoulder.

Good Luck
