    felt so painful

    A vampire bit me. I felt so painful that I screamed loudly.

    Are the words in bold correctly used? If not, how should I phrase it?

    Many thanks.

    It felt (was) so painful that I screamed.

    The actual bite was painful, not me.
    About yourself, you can say;

    "I was in such pain that..."
    "I was in so much pain that..."

    A stronger word than "pain" would be "agony" (used in the same way)
