Hi, again,
Last thing I'd like to ask is on the aspect of the verb.
Can verbs like 'hurt' and 'ache' used in the simple and in the continuous aspect? Which is correct?
Ex. My leg is hurting/hurts (ME?).
My shoulder aches/is aching.

thanks in advance

    As you've used them above, both are correct.
