Yes, its a problem. Even I try to exercise my hand a bit, whenever possible. Its not taught by anyone, but sort of a self forming habit because I had got pain before.

Excessive use is not an issue if you hold the mouse in comfortable angle, Change the angle of holding mouse..had same problem but after change of angle no problem at all. :)

Almost any branded mouse would do for comfort, but what matters more is that your wrist isn't bent when you use the computer, either due to the keyboard or the mouse. Ensure it is horizontal to the ground, and both hands are converging in a straight line, not bent at angles.

well yes my hands felt pressurized to the table as i have long legs and computer table is not the kind which can have my legs inside, may be that's the problem.

Some time I feel why I wasn't able to explain in such way! I was making a diagram in paint to upload here. Stupid me!

Try getting one with Ample Leg room. It is crucial for the posture of the body.

I too suffer from severe pain in the right wrist,elbow and shoulder. I try to mitigate that pain by using the mouse by left hand, using hand grips, Perform wrist exercises like lifting the hands upward so that they bend at the wrist, ETC
