Does it sound ok to use the ‑ing form of the intransitive verb ache meaning hurt?
- My stomach is aching.
instead of the simple verb:
- My stomach aches.
In other words, can we use the verb ache verb in to be aching continuous constructions such is/was aching, has/had been aching?
If the progressive and the non-progressive forms of the verb can both be used, which of the two is more common and comes more naturally to native speakers?
