It is a problem because you dont feel rested when you wake. This indicates that you are probably not getting a good quality of sleep. There can be various causes of this, and it will need to be looked at by a sleep doctor.

It is normal to wake during the night, even 4 or 5 times. However, we usually do not remember waking, and we should wake refreshed. So 10 times a night certainly sounds like you have a problem.
