It's an interesting question. In real life, there are viruses that can be transferred from animals to humans. A computer can be intentionally set up to make you feel sick by using the compute's light and sound in ways that disrupt your nervous system. It is more likely that you can experience feeling sick from normal operations of the PC.
If you have a tendency for getting seizures or have a form of epilepsy, you have have been told by a doctor to avoid flickering lights and some particular color combinations. This may not be a problem until you take some medications (some used to help people quit smoking etc.) that can make this more likely.
If you spend too much time looking only at the computer screen, your eyes are forced to focus at a given distance which can strain your eye muscles. It can be helpful to take a break every 15 minutes and look at something far away. Also, if your vision is changing you might benefit from new contacts or glasses.

You didn't mention in what way the computer may have contributed to making you feel sick. If you continue not to feel well, please consider seeing your doctor (just to play it safe).

Ur so silly!!! Go to the doctor now!!! You need surgery!!! But seriously if the computer was used by another sick person and they transfered HUMAN viruses on to the computer and you used it and got HUMAN sick, that could happen
Dennis:
Yes, you can get a virus from your computer. It's not as common as getting pregnant but it can happen
Jhon Carter:
Try to use some malware detection software, and clean your daily bases temporary files with cc cleaner, and purchase a anti-virus license.

Only if that computer "virus" came from your little brother when he was messing with your computer and sneezed all over the keyboard, and then you touched the keys and put your fingers in your mouth or touched your eyes with your fingers. This is snot funny!
