I ve taken 2 paracetamols and more or less was sick straight away and it was bright orange liquid. I haven t eaten anything since yesterday afternoon which i brought up anyway.

it is likely the codeine is making you feel sick you are obviously very sensitive to it. you did the right thing stopping this medication and the symptoms should improve over the next 24-48hrs. your torticollis should also improve over a few days. heat compress, antiinflammatory medication, massage and physiotherapy can help with the symptoms.
