In brief: Team effort
Fibromyalgia appears to respond to multi-modal treatment.
Doctors from many specialties often work together: rheumatology, psychiatry, pain, family, etc.

In brief: All
All doctors can diagnose because criteria are well defined & specific.
Latest criteria is a short questionnaire. Previous criteria included physical finding of pain points, but theses no longer required. This gives insight that cause is unknown & criteria for diagnosis is similarly shifty. On my chronic pain board at quora.Com, i present a full discussion of the "true cause of fibromyalgia".
