    Default worry about

    Hello.

    What I'd like to ask for your help about is "worry about".
    Is there any difference in meaning between "worry about something" and "be/get worried about something"?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a difference.
    "I worry about my health." This is a general, ongoing situation.
    "I am worried about my health." This is a current, temporary situation, possibly based on the recent appearance of a symptom.
