Sick and ill are almost identical, although sick is usually describing minor health problems and illness is usually used to describe terminal or serious health problems. But many English speaking North Americans have chosen to use sick as slang, to mean cool, awesome or wicked (another slang word). Example: That skateboard trick was sick. I have used it many times and not even realized I had used it.
