@abbeyc While you are on Methotrexate (and possibly Prednisone too), your doctor should be ordering blood tests every three months regularly. I also had a liver biopsy (non invasive, something like an ultrasound but a scan of the liver) every couple of years. This was regardless of my fatty liver disease.
@abbeyc – my husband has PMR and he had to take Prednisone. The weaning process was very slow and it took eighteen months for him to wean off it. He had to continue with the weaning process long after his pain was gone.
He is off Prednisone completely now, and has had just one flare up that lasted only two days. He hasn’t had another flare up since 2019.
