    When the morphine wore off

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    When the morphine wore off, the unbearable pain shot through Peter's body, and he screamed, calling the nurse to help him.

    teechar,

    I understand that "pain" can be written with or without an article.
    I am wondering if I write my sentences like this, would they be correct?

    1. Bob felt terrible pain in his abdomen.
    2. I was writhing with a pain which shook my whole body.
    3. Peter was screaming with pain after a car drove over his foot.
