No, I don't believe it is too low. I've gone with even lower
strengths and had no real problem. Going solo makes it a major
nuisance unless you get some spells or items. Then the limited
inventory slots become the bottleneck.
There are a few items that add strength, and also some fairly low
level spells, both cleric and mage, that add to strength. And 'Good'
characters can get the innate DUHM which helps with your strength.
