    Welcome to the forums Kintzacos. In many cases "sick" and "ill" are interchangeable, there are situations, however, where one is better than the other. For example, in BrE if you say "I feel sick", it means that you feel like you are going to vomit. If you want to say that you feel unwell you would say "I feel ill".
