experience a pain to that level

Three years ago, when I heard the terrible news that my grandpa had passed away, my heart was broken. I had never thought he would leave me. I had never experienced a pain to that level in my entire life.
(Quoted from an English test paper)

Does “experienced a pain to that level” sound natural?

Many thanks!

    It's perfectly grammatical, but I would be inclined to say 'never experienced pain to that level', using pain as uncountable, but imagining it on a scale of more or less severe.
