I was playing Planetside last night for a few hours. When I woke up this morning, my right hand hurt like hell. So I'm looking for a new mouse. I'm leaning towards the Logitech MX500, but I was wondering if anyone else had any tips. I prefer optical corded mice.

Ever use a trackball? I don't use one currently, but the ones (yes I know how this sounds) with large, weighty balls are actually quite good. Coupled with a good wrist pad it can be quite ergonomic.

Dead. My old cat liked to use them as toys.

I used to, and swore by it for games, but now I'm pretty sure I was full of it. Other than that, I enjoy the large Kensington trackballs (TurboMouse/Expert Mouse). However, the other reason I'm thinking about switching mice is because I have a Kensinton mouse right now and the scrollwheel isn't recognized by over half of the games I have. And that just sucks.

Oh yeah. I was diagnosed with it over 10 years ago, and have kept it pretty well in check with frequent applications of wrist braces, but since I've been in the computer industry for the last 3, I'm not very nice to my wrists.

I don't have a specific product to recommend, but I have seen some mice with a shape that's designed to keep your hand at an angle, so there there's less stress on the wrist.

Here's one that illustrates the principle to the extreme.

I had the same problem at work. I got myself a mouse pad with a Gel Pad built in for the wrist and it worked wonders

I have the MX900 and it works very well (comes with a bluetooth base as well). The MX700 has gotten great reviews as well. The corded MX510 was well liked as a gamer's mouse.
I am also an FPS player. Even though it's wireless it's nice for the twitchy games.
I had the latest MS mouse and it was mushy and slow and I died to easily in UT2004 so I ditched that. Scrolling for a new weapon most often lead to me trying to kill the guy with a rocket launcher by bludgening him with my fists... frustrating.
But, if you are already using MX500 your best and possibly cheapest way to go would be to try to support your arm/hand more or move it to a more neutral position. Ergonomics might be poopooed by some people, but it can make huge difference. (hehehe I wrote poo)
Or do what I did. Suffer through the pain until you do so much damage that you are numb.....
