In brief: Thoracic Outlet
Pain pills are at time successful in temporarily relieving pain but they do nothing to cure the cause of the pain of thoracic outlet syndrome.
It is necessary for you to get medical help. See your doctor for an examination and careful diagnosis. A proper course of treatment can help you relieve the cause of the pain.

In addition to making sure nothing scary is causing your symptoms, by seeing your doctor, consider osteopathic manipulation (OMT) or yoga, tai chi, Feldenkrais, etc to address any postural components that may be contributing to your pain. Find osteopathic physicians online via AAO or Cranial Academy.

Physical therapy, and occasionally surgery may be necessary for longer or permanent relief.
