    Using "to anguish" as a verb in sentences

    I would like to use the verb, to anguish, in two sentences.

    (1) John injured his back severely when he accidentally fell off the roof of his house. He was anguishing over his physical pain for a few days.

    (2) Team A anguished over its failure to defeat Team B after making a big effort.

    Am I using the word correctly? Thanks a lot.

    Re: Using "to anguish" as a verb in sentences

    The first doesn't work for me, but the second does.

    Here are some sentences showing 'anguished over' being used:
