Hi there! :)

I just want to ask what is the difference between the following 2 expressions:

Amy is feeling good.
Amy is feeling well.

What I think is that the first one mean that Amy is doing all right.
The second one is that she is good in feeling things.

Am I right?

Thanks in advance.

No, I am afraid you are not right there.

'Amy is feeling good' means that Amy is in a positive frame of mind

'Amy is feeling well' means that Amy is in good health

hello
Well is an adverb
How are you ? I am well
"I am good" is spoken form , coloquial

Good is an adjective
it is a good day

I agree. Good is an adjective, and 'I am feeling good' is is informal usage .The correct usage is 'I am feeling well' as 'well' is an adverb which is modifying the verb 'feel'.
