    Cool the pain remains

    Hello!

    Is it correct to say: "I burned myself really badly last year and the pain remained for a long time".


    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Will

    It's possible to say that. I feel that it would be more natural to say;

    It (i.e. the burn) was painful for a very long time.

    or

    I was in pain for a very long time.

    I would say "I burned myself really bad last year and the pain lasted for a long time."
