Is your Thoracic Outlet Syndrome caused by  fibromyalgia?
I think you should listen to a professional. here is the information should know. You should be treated under the guidance of a doctor. There is no easy way.
Medications
Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved pregabalin and duloxetine for the management of fibromyalgia. The FDA also approved milnacipran, but the European Medicines Agency refused marketing authority.

Antidepressants
Antidepressants are "associated with improvements in pain, depression, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and health-related quality of life in people with FMS." The goal of antidepressants should be symptom reduction and if used long term, their effects should be evaluated against side effects. A small number of people benefit significantly from the SNRIs duloxetine and milnacipran and the tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), such as amitriptyline. However, many people experience more adverse effects than benefits. While amitriptyline has been used as a first line treatment, the quality of evidence to support this use is poor.

It can take up to three months to derive benefit from the antidepressant amitriptyline and between three and six months to gain the maximal response from duloxetine, milnacipran, and pregabalin. Some medications have the potential to cause withdrawal symptoms when stopping so gradual discontinuation may be warranted particularly for antidepressants and pregabalin.

There is tentative evidence that the benefits and harms of SSRIs appear to be about similar.

Anti-seizure medication
The anti-convulsant drugs gabapentin and pregabalin may be used to reduce pain. There is tentative evidence that gabapentin may be of benefit for pain in about 18% of people with fibromyalgia. It is not possible to predict who will benefit, and a short trial may be recommended to test the effectiveness of this type of medication. Approximately 6/10 people who take gabapentin to treat pain related to fibromyalgia experience unpleasant
I've seen people talk about eating high protein low carbon foods good for fibromyalgia. Exercise would be yoga. The restless leg syndrome, you can get help from your doctor, sometimes iron supplement is given to relieve the symptoms, but don't buy iron supplement take them on your own. Your doctor has to find out is iron supplement is okay for you.
I had a variant of TOS. When not related to an extra rib, a major cause of TOS is a Front/back muscle imbalance- also called Upper Crossed Syndrome. The fix is to stretch the short/tight muscles and strengthen the long/weak muscles in this syndrome. Look up Upper Crossed Syndrome, then look up the appropriate stretches and exercises. (for instance, you will need to stretch the pecs and strengthen the scapular stabilizer muscles). Then go to town. 3-5 times per day for 30 minutes/session. This is what I did, and in two months i felt alot better.
