There is really nothing wrong with the sentence.  You caused me more pain than happiness. 


Sanjay recommends changing happiness to pleasure.  There is a difference in meaning, but pain and pleasure are more often contrasted with each other.  This carries a sense of physical pain or pleasure, though.  If you want to stick to the emotional side of things, suffering and happiness are easily contrasted.
