    None of them is very good. "I have a problem similar to yours" is better.

    Bhaisahab is absolutely correct (as usual!) The correct phrase is "similar to". The opposite is "different from".

    Re: as/like

    For comparison, similar is always followed by 'to' something/somebody.
    'Same' is followed by 'as'.
    One thing is like another (no preposition).
