Learn English – Which is correct? “I do not feel good” or “I do not feel well”


I was reading through a few short stories when I realised that one of the stories had these two sentences:" I do not feel good" and "I do not feel well" I was quite puzzled and I would like to know if they are both correct. If they are different in anyway, please provide a specimen sentence for the two sentences.

Best Answer

I do not feel good and I do not feel well are equivalent. They both indicate your well-being. Well and good both modify feel. However, you can use feel good in another construction like so:

I do not feel good about the path I have taken.

Here, you are not expressing anything about your health, rather you are expressing how you are feeling about your interaction with something else, like "the path".
