    I have Osteo arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Can altitudes over about 7000 feet cause more body pain?

    On several occasions I have experienced severe all over muscle and joint pain, (such as I experience when in a bad Fibromyalgia flare), if I stayed at high altitudes for longer than a few hours. The pain seems to dissipate on returning to lower elevations. This happens every time that I have tried to spend more than about 4 or 5 hours at elevations higher than 7000 to 8000 feet.
