    "get a headache" and "have a headache"

    Hello.

    1. get a headache
    2. have a headache

    "Catch a cold" and "have a cold" don't mean the same thing, don't they? What about #1 and #2?

    Thank you.

    No they don't mean the same. Compare: 'If you don't stop that noise, I will get a headache.' and 'I have a headache because of the noise you are making'.

    "Catch a cold" and "have a cold" don't mean the same thing, don't they?

    "Catch a cold" and "have a cold" don't mean the same thing, do they?
