Anxieux vs nerveux

Anxieux vs nerveux

Should je suis toujours anxieux also be an accepted answer compared to je suis toujours nerveux? Or perhaps anxieux is considered more a medical condition and too strong in this context?

Hi John,

I think you have answered your own question. 

The term 'anxieux' is much too strong in that context, it is pretty normal to be 'nerveux/nerveuse' before any kind of tests but if you suffered from anxiété you would probably have to talk to your doctor about it and they might refer you to a specialist.

Bonne Continuation !

Salut John.

Both could relate to being in a state of stress, so look potentially appropriate to me.

Bonne journée

Jim
