Just wondering as I read the posts on this board whether most fibromyalgiacs use a general practitioner as their primary caregiver, with a rheumatologist consulting on an occasional basis, or whether the rheumatologist tends to be the primary caregiver for fibromyalgia patients. I'll start. My family practice doc referred me to a rheumatologist to confirm his tentative diagnosis of fibromyalgia (which she did). She then sent me back to him for continuing care. I also see a neurologist occasionally for consultation on my migraines and I've seen a gastroenterologist for my IBS.
