is constant worrying a symptom of anxiety?

Yes: I liken chronic worry to a light switch. Many "normal" worriers can turn worrisome thoughts on and off whereas chronic worriers have a difficult time controlling worry. Chronic worriers also have other physical symptoms such as restlessness, fatigue, muscle tension, difficulty concentration, and irritability. Generalized anxiety disorder is the "worry" anxiety disorder.

Anxiety?: If accompanied by other symptoms of anxiety. Google the words "generalized anxiety disorders".
