Not directly.: Fatty liver is a known, and potentially reversible, complication of obesity. There is no common direct relationship of fatty liver with side and back pain other than the added risk of lumbago and back pain due spinal pressure from supporting an obese body. All of these symptoms greatly improve with weight loss 10 pounds plus your liver will function better! get healthy!
