I don't play "attack" type games. Mostly match 3, hidden object and time mgmt/strategy games. But I also do alot of searching on my computer for a multitude of subjects. Basically, I am on my computer about 6 to 8 hours a day.

 

I am having alot of PAIN in my middle finger and palm of my hand. So I am looking for a mouse that will help relieve that pain.

 

I have been looking at the GYRATION that doesn't require a flat service. Was wondering if anyone has opinions on this mouse or could suggest something else.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

THANKS

I don't have any suggestions on a mouse but just wanted to say that a several years back I learned to mouse with my other hand.  Now I can switch back and forth.  It relieves a lot of stress on my hands/wrist/fingers.  It is very awkward but given some time and practice it works, for me at least.  Now I can play any game with either hand.  Although games like Skyrim and the like, that use WASD work much better mousing with the right.  Now I mouse with my right hand at home and with my left at work.  Later I can have carpal tunnel in both when I get old.  LOL

 

Let me know if you find a mouse that works for you.  I may have a look too.

Oh Wow...My Dad is ambidextrous, but I don't think I could do that. I might have to try though. I am really thinking about getting one of the mice that look like a joy stick. I found some at a pretty reasonable price. But what I would really love to have are the mice that don't require a flat service, the ones that are handheld. People use them for presentations and such. But I don't think they would work for gaming.

 

I will let you know if I come up with anything that works.

 

Thanks for your response.

Have you ever tried a trackball? Less hand motion.

I find this one very comfortable, but you need to go to a store and rest your hand on them to see which feels best..
