In brief: Yes.
All disciplines see patients with fibromyalgia.
In my experience, a multimodal approach is best, including family doctors, pain management docs and psychiatrists.

? about number of patients seen with fibromyalgia (FM).
About 4% of population has FM, and many seek medical care. Unfortunately, many doctors refute reality of FM & tend to regard associated complaints as products of psychologic disarray. I estimate that about 20-30% of the fibromyalgia population avoids the medical system because they have learned that doctors don't take them seriously.
