Muscular pain: Could be muscular pain. Doubt that back pain is from fatty liver. I hope you're on a strict diet to fix the fatty liver - no sugar, minimal carbs, etc?! go to a4m.Com and use directory function to find a local functional medicine doctor to help guide you with appropriate dietary changes to correct the fatty liver. If not may end up with liver failure and transplant down the road. Get going!
