    Post "stomachache or stomach ache"

    I would be grateful if you would tell me whether I should use "stomachache" or "stomach ache".
    I have a stomachache. I feel awful.

    A check with a dictionary would tell you that both are acceptable.

    Konstantin, click here and then put 'stomach ache' in the search box.

    Bookmark the OneLook site for future reference.

    The Ngram Viewer is a useful site to bookmark, too. It gives you an idea of the relative frequency of usage of the two forms. (Click on the underlined link.)
