Are the rollers inside free of fluff, it's amazing what collects on them over time. If you can borrow another mouse to try, may give a clue to the problem.

I have exactly the same problem with my 1953 car only it pulls to the left, don't suppose your mouse has a sticking wheel cylinder. LOL

Regards,

Had exactly the same mouse problem yesterday, and although I too thought it was spotless inside, in the centre of both the little thin black rollers was some stuck on dirt. It was hard and looked and felt like it was an integral part of the roller. (Only knew it shouldn't be there by comparing it to an identical mouse.) Took some getting off but the mouse now works fine.

Had similar problems with mouse continually getting dirty. Got a corded optical. Brilliant. Worth every penny.

Three informative sites: click here click here click here

Considering the cost of some mouse products, it may pay to get a new one. I think ebuyer's corded mouse start at about 59pence.
