When playing Computer games, I use my right hand on the mouse and my right hand seems to be really really colder than the left. I'm wondering if its from putting strain on it and its cutting blood off. The left hand is not cold and feels warmer.

Not something to play with, mate. Tell your doctor about this ASAP since it may indicate an underlying health concern.

If your right hand is elevated, it will slow blood flow to it - I'm using one cool hand and one warm hand to type this.

I don't have one of those cushion things. I don't notice any different color between the two hands. Just a temperature difference.

It's exactly the opposite for me, my right hand (that I use for the mouse) becomes warmer than the left ...
Is your mouse by any chance very, very cold?

Seems very strange to me, I'd go see a doctor

Michael Jackson was feeling cold and hot on different sides of his body before he died.

It's all about what you eat. Question your self when you eat last time...
As well, come into play for heat blood traveling speed (hart rate). If you motionless and blood has only fat to burn. Let's say you just drink water for 2nd day you usually will feel this effect, there is no need to burn extreme amount of fat cells to sustain accuracy of body, it's deals with cold OK. I count this as perfectly normal. The minute you start working out, blood delivers more stored fat cells and it creates heat which keeps body worm.

If you're using a wrist rest or an "ergonomic" mouse, it could be that, causing a minor circulation problem. I am absolutely positively convinced that wrist rests and "ergonomic" mouses, mouse pads, and keyboards, are the -cause- of carpal tunnel syndrome and not a treatment for it. Everyone I know who's had CPS, has had to use those danged wrist supports at work because their bosses insisted on it. Everyone. From my mom and sister, to half a dozen people I've worked with.

I hate the things and in fact when I was told I had to use them when I had an office job, I told them no, to just write me up and put it in my file that I refused, and leave me alone, they aren't comfortable, they slow down my typing, and they cramp up the pads of my hands.

I also took the arms off the chair so I could sit cross-legged on the chair, because I'm too short to lower the chair all the way and still reach the keyboard comfortably, but raising the chair to the proper level means my feet don't touch the floor

I might do things "wrong" but I've never had any problems with my carpal tunnel. After 35 years of typing (I learned when I was 16 on a non-electric old fashioned Royal typewriter), I'd say I must be doing something right.
