    Why, what mouse are you currently using and why don't you like it? What is it that you want to be able to do using your mouse that you cannot do at the moment?

    Use your other hand. Or...

    ...try a gaming mouse (programmable).
    ...wear a soft brace.
    ...use voice recognition.
    ...try a trackball.
    ...switch careers.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    Have a look at the Evolent Vertical Mouse 2 some swear by them for eliminating the hand pain.

    I used to have lots of hand pain, I put a wrist pad under my elbow and get in a position where my arm is pretty much straight (corner desk), I can run my mouse all day every day with no hand pain.

    Anything that has a different form factor than your current mouse is going to help but that only puts a band-aid on it. Get your workstation set up as ergonomically as possible and stretch frequently throughout the day.
    Drafting is a breeze.

    I have used a gaming mouse from Logitech for years without any issue. G500 model.

    Multi-button. Weighted. Right handed.

    I've seen a few people using them that swear by them, I had to show a co-worker how to do something in AutoCAD on his station, I tried that mouse but ended up bringing mine over.
