Hello: D

"I just got over from having a stomach ache."

Does this sentence make sense , and sound like it's spoken by a native speaker ? I don't find it sound odd or incorrect, but just to make sure. Or if there's a better version to say this, please.

Thank you so much

    Not really. That is the way it would most commonly be said. I just got over the flu. I just got over a case of the measles, etc. Ihave heard it the other way, but very seldom.

    Your original sentence was: I just got over from having a stomach ache.

    The "from" is completely wrong. Without that word, the sentence would be grammatically correct but not fully idiomatic, since our common way of saying this is:
    I just got over a stomach ache.

    Is it clear now?

    For me there's still a problem of tense although many people wouldn't think so. BE me would use the present perfect or past perfect or present or past continuous.

    I've just got over the flu.
    I've just got over having my wisdom teeth extracted.

    I'm just getting over my brother's death.


    I had just got over ......
