Is it true using mouse will give us bad effect to our finger? If it true, anybody can share their experience, fact or anything here with me and also with another friend?

I dont think using the mouse causes any such harm to your health. Because it doesn't demand any serious force or something. It may cause harm if you are using it in a wrong posture that is if you are handling the mouse in a wrong manner.

It can affect your wrist and give you carpal tunnel syndrome or repetative strain injury. my siste got rsi years ago and had to give up her job,she is still in pain now and it is over 10 years ago. use a wrist rest when yu use your computer, you can get one for when you use mouse and one for accros the front of the keyboard. you can also buy different design of mouse, such as tracker ball mouse, which is like a box with buttons that you press instead of the traditional mouse and this can help if you have problems and to stop injuries arising.

Like what one of our friend stated, yeah we can develop the carpal tunnel syndrome. To me, the first few months I was experiencing aches at my fingers - it feels like sharp needles pricking inside the nails. But now I no longer experience that. Furthermore, I don't use the mouse all the time. Sometimes, I scroll by pressing the keyboard. That's how I keep the imbalance off my fingers.
