I'm with this guy. Mix it up. It's the repetition that's killin' ya, not the mouse itself.
At work (not recording related) I have a Logitech Marble Mouse. In Studio, I use a little Logitech V220 when I'm at my desk. And at home, when "couch mixing" or whatever i use the trackpad on my MacBook.
I used to get terrible wrist pains when I used the same type of mouse at home and at work. Since adopting the three alternatives methods I really haven't had a problem.
Now and then in the studio if I'm doing some intensive repetitive edits like adjusting timing, busy automation points, melodyne, etc, things can get sore. At that point i take a break. Breaks are pretty important too. If you can get comfortable alternating methods in the studio that'd be great too.
