Is it bad to have pain in your lower back?

Yes because for one i have it bad! Its not fun at all and bothers me 24/7. Its causing a chain reaction up my back and spine into my neck. Its all out of wack now. Ive been trying to et doctors to listen to me for about 10 years now...and i still had to live with the pain. Feels like your life is in their hands and there is nothing you can do about it and its sad. If they would have done something years ago when it started in my lower back it may not have gotten this far! Now i find out one bad thing after another
