    Have (A) Reason

    "I have reason to be worried."
    "I have a reason to be worried."

    "Reason" is both countable and uncountable. Could both sentences be correct?

    Re: Have (A) Reason

    I have reason to be worried - My worry is justified.
    I have a reason to be worried/for being worried - One thing is causing my worry.
