Deadlifts should fatigue the back, but not cause pain. Out of the big 3 (squat/benchpress/deadlift) I personally think its the hardest form to learn, and when I see people deadlifting almost 99% of the time there is something wrong with their form.

Sumo is more leg intensive, and as you found out, takes away from the "back" part of the exercise. Stick to squats and romanian (stiff legged) deadlifts for quad / hamstring development and deadlift conventional with proper form to get a ripped back.
