Hi, I hope I'm in the right area. I was wondering if anyone out there knows if there is a pen/pencil that could be used instead of the mouse? I have been playing the game Caesar IV and the way you have to scroll and use the mouse well now I have "trigger finger" in my thumb and the nerves running through it are pretty messed up. Using the mouse now for anything is a problem. Thanks for any ideas.

There are a couple of things you could try. One is a Pen tablet from makers like:

you might also try a trackball as they don't require you to hold them the same way as a mouse....
