  • Hola Molly!
    I’m wondering if it’s correct to also say:

    -Se alivia el dolor
    —cuando corre?
    -cuando come?
    -cuando hace ejercicio
    -cuando tose… etc??

    • Thank you for this question.
      You you could! Definitely.
      In this case I prefer AL + INFINITIVO, only because it implies that the action performed relieves the pain.
      For example, “¿Se alivia el dolor al sentarse?” can also be interpreted as, “Is the pain relieved BY sitting up?
      I hope that makes sense.

      Un abrazo,
