I have bi-later arterial as well as neurogenic TOS. It really can cause alot of pain and emotional problems as well. I agree that surgery is not the first most answer. You need to try forms of therapy for it first. Feldenkrais being the best method. I also work with a chiropractor twice a week. One of the first people that I turned to was Dr. Richard Sanders out of Denver Co. He wrote a wonderful detailed book on TOS and is also a pioneer in surgery. This is the only condition that he spends his time with these days. He is a joy to speak with on the phone and will give you some great advise!!! You can look him up on his website Dr. Richard Sanders.com and give him a call. His secretarys and nurses are also a joy to speak with!!! Good Luck!! And by the way you can by his book, which is only available at his clinic. I have it and it is the only book you will every need on TOS!!! Another great place for info is the TOS forum, lots of great people over there with the same situation. You can find it on BrainTalk.org under Thoracic Outlet Forum.

I hope it never comes down to surgery for you but if it does I researched extensively and had my first rib resection done by Dr Annest of this group

This group gets the best results from what I could research due to technique and their rehab team. I heard about this doc from the people with tos at http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=f69524bc2694a42fc9c8f1c48aa1c41f&f=249
