    anxiety / concern

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether there is a difference between following two sentences?

    The mother feel anxiety for her sick child.

    The mother feel concern for her sick child.

    Anxiety and concern connote an uneasy and burdened state of mind. In that case where is the difference?

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    There is outwardly no difference and they are synonym. Inwardly, anxiety reflects a combination of biochemical changes in the body and it can be accompanied by physical effects such as heart palpitations, fatigue, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headaches. Excessive anxiety can be a cause of heart attack
