Hi, I know I haven't been on here in quite awhile, I have been having some bad side effects the last while. Just found out last week that I have severe fatty liver, it was causing me pain under my right ribs and upper stomachs. Seen 2 doctors, then finally went to the ER. They did an ultra sound and said my liver was enlarged and my mild fatty liver is now severe. I am now down to 7.5 mg of prednisone, rheumy also has me taking methotrexate to help with reducing. Now that this liver problem has come to light, I am very nervous to continue with the methotrexate. My rheumy wants me to reduce the prednisone every 5 days by 1 mg. I am scared it will cause either a flare or adrenal crisis, but at the same time I know I need to get off these drugs. Just need a little guidance on if the reduction plan the doctor has suggested will only cause my more problems or if it is reasonable. Thanks in advance.
