    Can I say " I ate until my stomach hurts me"

    Hello everyone,

    Does it natural to say " I ate until my stomach hurts me" ?? Or, is it expressed in English in another expression?
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    Think about what you wrote. How could your stomach hurt you? Your stomach is part of you. You could say - "I ate until my stomach hurt".
    Consider these - I ran until my feet hurt. I sang until my ears rang. I hammered until my arms and hands hurt.
