Does anyone know if living at high altitudes (like denver) hurts your joints?

In brief: Possibly.
Research has shown that those with a history of joint pain can experience fluctuations in their level of pain with even small shifts in barometric pressure.
Barometric pressure changes can certainly be seen at altitude or with rapid weather changes which are seen quite frequently in denver.
