    As I told you on ELU, you should say "I have had worse problems" or "I have been in worse situations". The present situation is bad, but not as bad as some you have experienced before – Kate Bunting Jan 29 at 16:57

What strikes me as wrong (or at least not natural) in this sentence is "in problems". One has problems, but isn't usually in them.

I have been in worse situations.


I have encountered worse problems.

are better.

(This does not address your direct question - whether the sentence you wrote is grammatically or syntactically correct.)
