    Tooth\stomach\ear\head\back ache (and heart ache,though that's not medical). Everything else is sore. They all hurt.

    Thanks for your explanation :D

    And what's about "ill and sick"?

    When I look TV (DVD) there are sometimes used "ill" and sometimes "sick". I know that both have the same translation. But when I have to use "ill", and when I have to use "sick" ?

    Example:
    1a.) I feel ill.
    1b.) I feel sick.

    2a.) He is very ill.
    2b.) He is very sick.

    Which of these sentences are correct?

    Thanks,
    Dany :D
