Default Cogito ergo mouse and keyboard

Need a new mouse and keyboard. I've been using a Microsoft optical wheel mouse for years, but I don't find it particularly comfortable.

Sometimes I get "mouse hand" where the strings/cords/ligaments on the back of my hand hurt, and I'm not sure if a more ergonomic mouse would help. It happens when I'm overworked, so maybe it's unavoidable.

No real complaints about my Microsoft keyboard, but wouldn't mind something more comfy and/or snazzy (and less clicky). I like the looks of those wild backlit keyboards (I think they are for gamers) but don't know anything about them. Maybe they're for teenagers and not doddering old people with hurty hand strings?

Any suggestions?

And before anyone asks, I already have a Wacom tablet and pen. I never could get the hang of using that pen as a mouse.
