    'Je ne me sens pas bien' is I'm not feeling well. 'J'ai mal à la tête' is I have a headache. I think tootache is 'mal aux dents' but I'm not entirely sure.

    toothache can be translated into French by: "(un) mal de dents", "(j'ai) mal aux dents" or "(une) rage de dents" (the last one describes a stronger pain).

    Douleur is pain... I think :) If french is anything like spanish, you might be able to say

    "Douleur d'estomac"

    but I'm not 100% sure

    Yes, I confirm you can say that, as long as your stomach is where you feel pain. ;)
