I’m a webmaster by trade. As you can imagine, that requires a lot of typing and a lot of mouse clicking. I use an ergonomic keyboard to clack away, but not long ago I started developing a “tiredness” in my right wrist. Over time that “tiredness” turned to numbness and eventually pain.
That’s when I picked up a new mouse. It helped a bit because of its unique shape – but the pain didn’t go away entirely.
I picked up a new mouse, this time from Anker (rather than Microsoft). It’s shaped such that your wrist can “stand up” rather than “lay down” when you’re using it. It feels great, and after my initial break-in period of about two days, it’s no longer “weird” to use… and my wrist pain is gone. Completely. No numbness or “tiredness” either.
The only downside, although it’s wireless (comes with a USB 2.4GHz dongle), it’s not Bluetooth, so I can’t easily use it with my Android phone or tablet.
I don’t know if it’ll do the same for you, but for under US$20, it’s worth a try!
