    Question have been having

    I have read this thread https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...-headache.html
    there is a sentence "I have been having headaches for a year."

    but according to Product Groups - English Grammar in Use Online



    We cannot use continuous forms for this. Who is right?

    Re: have been having

    Is "I'm having a headache" correct or only "I'm having headaches"?
