Hello and hope you are doing well.

How is your urine output? were kidney function tests done? There is an entity called hepatorenal syndrome, where in as a consequence to liver failure, you can get kidney failure. This can in turn cause anemia and dependent edema. This edema can cause the discomfort in the lower back. The anemia can cause fatigue and dizziness. Kidney disorders can also affect the bones and cause generalized pain. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
