"Have" and "Having" Correctly
simple words, one representing the simple present and the other the
present continuous, can cause difficulty when used with certain
expressions. The rule is to use “have” when you mean that you “own”
something or to describe a medical condition. Thus, “I have a new car”
and “I have a headache.” (note that new English learners sometimes say,
“I am having a headache,” which is incorrect.)
However, the rule
is broken in the case of the expression, “I am having a heart attack,”
that is if you are lucky enough to speak at that moment! Sometimes,
English is a contrary language and one must learn its variations by
our most recent tips.
