    I feel ill. My eyes hurt.
    I have vision or eye problems or disorders

    She died of AIDS.

    She died of malaria.

    There may be some other ideas on this.

    If it's only your eyes that hurt, you wouldn't go to a doctor and say 'I feel ill'. You'd go to an optician and say 'My eyes hurt'. You'd only say 'I feel ill. My eyes hurt...' if the pain in your eyes was one of many symptoms, and you were going on to say 'I can't sleep, I'm off my food, and I've got this strange shooting pain in my back.' Or something like that.

    Thank you friends.
    From the dictionary :
    ill = suffering from a disease:

    So, why I can't say, Aids, Malaria, which is diseases name are illness.

    Disease is the more clinical term while illness does not convey as much severity of the condition. Some say that disease is the agent that causes the problem, while illness is the resulting state.
    Illness is a state of poor health.

    "Disease refers to a malfunctioning of biological and/or psychological processes, while the term illness refers to the psychosocial experience and meaning of perceived disease." [http://www.infinityinst.com/articles..._disease.html]

    So, you can say :

    I am ill now because I`m suffering from malaria disease - your condition [clinical condition] is poor because you confront with a serious, infectious, catching disease : malaria.

    Thank you friends.
    So, I think, I can say, "I have been ill with AIDS/Malaria/Jaundice for 2 months". Are all these correct?

    I suppose you can, but there is simpler to say :
    I have had malaria / jaundice. As for AIDS , you cannot say I`ve had AIDS because this disease is not curable for the time being , so, the most appropriate sentence might be I have AIDS or I suffer from HIV / AIDS.
