In lesson 5 we already had the question Hur mår du? (How are you (feeling)). Here are a couple of possible answers to this:

Jag mår …
I’m (feeling) …

Jag mår bra. I’m (feeling) well.
Jag mår inte bra. I’m not (feeling) well.
Jag mår dåligt. I’m (feeling) bad.

You can also use the following expression:

Jag är (+adjective/participle).
Jag är …

Jag är sjuk. I’m sick.
Jag är förkyld. I’ve got a cold.

Jag har (+noun)
I have …

Jag har feber. I’ve got a fever.
Jag har influensa(n). I’ve got the flu.
Jag har diarré. I’ve got diarrhea

Jag har (noun)värk*.
I’ve got …ache.

Jag har huvudvärk. I’ve got headache.
Jag har tandvärk. I’ve got toothache.
Jag har ryggvärk. I’ve got back pain.
*This construction is in theory possible to use with all body parts but it is a matter of frequency. For instance you don’t often hear benvärk or magvärk but rather ont i benen and ont i magen.

Jag har ont i (noun in its definite form).
I’ve got pain in …

Jag har ont i halsen. My throat hurts.
Jag har ont i huvudet. My head hurts.
Jag har ont i ryggen. My back hurts.
Jag har ont i magen. My stomach hurts.
Jag har ont in benen. My legs hurt.

You could also say:

Min/Mitt/Mina … gör ont.
My … hurt/hurts.

Min hals gör ont. My throat hurts.
Mina ben gör ont. My legs hurt.

Two important expression are also:

Jag är (inte) vaccinerad mot … I’m (not) vaccinated for …
Jag är (inte) allergisk mot … I am (not) allergic to …
