    Cool ache/hurt

    Hello!


    In the following cases, are the tenses correct here? :

    -A falls down

    -B says: "where does it hurt?'

    -A says: my head hurts! Well, actually my whole body is aching!

    Thank you
    W>

    Cool Re: ache/hurt

    Thank you.

    And could we say:

    A falls down: "ouch"

    -B says: "Where is it hurting?'

    -A says: My head is hurting! Well, actually my whole body aches!

    Thank you
