Yeah, nicotine will make you really sick if you aren't used to it (even if you do smoke regularly, the kind of raw/good quality tobacco in hookahs and the amount of time spent using one could still definitely make you feel pretty crap). The first time I smoked was with this guy and I ended up having to go inside and throw up, pretty embarrassing. Hope that doesn't happen to you and that you feel better soon :o)
I've been smoking it way too much this past month since a relative brought the finest tobacco from their vacation. Every time I go to the gym I feel sick to my stomach so now I'm not going to bother smoking.
Nicotine is most likely the reason for the throwing up relatively quickly after smoking it but basically the nicotine is the least of your worries when it comes to hookah itself. The water used in smoking it does not filter out the massive amount of toxins within the product itself. Technically you can be inhaling more carbon monoxide, heavy metals, tar, and carcinogens than cigarettes and if you are sitting down to a smoking session you can be inhaling more smoke than 100 cigarettes worth. If you are one of those that also smokes quite often your CEA levels, or carcinoembyronic antigen, which is a protein that acts to stick cells together and is also an important marker in cancers (especially colon) will go up. Try not to smoke the stuff to a level of dependence like the addictions are with cigarettes. Use the sickness as a means to limit your use, I hope you feel better though.
