Hello Hamdy Ali
Anyone would understand you if you said 'I have pain', but normally we don't use 'have' with 'pain'. Instead, it's common to say 'I feel pain in my stomach' or 'The pain in my stomach is getting worse' or 'I am in a lot of pain'. You can see more examples in this dictionary entry:
It's also very common to use the verb 'hurt', e.g. 'My stomach hurts': (see number 2 'feel pain').
I hope this helps.
All the best
