    Talking doubt

    Hello there!

    I've got a doubt...

    Yesterday , I said to my colleague "I've got a big mouth ulcer and I've just eaten a chocolate, so now it stings!!"

    These words came out rather naturally but afterwards, I wondered wheteher it would have been better to say "it is stinging".

    Can you help me?

    Thanks

    To native speaker, these two are interchageable. Both mean the same.
