In brief: See below
Most everyone has back pain at some time in there life.
It is extremely common. How a person copes has a lot to do with how disabled they may or may not become. Most people seem to cope pretty well. Some people have never developed good coping skills and are what we call catastrophizers. They see any pain at all as not acceptable and become preoccupied with a cure which is often ellusive.
