Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g2347 Greek: thlipsis

Anguish:

See AFFLICTION (No. 4).

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g4730 Greek: stenochoria

Anguish:

lit., "narrowness of place" (stenos, "narrow," chora, "a place"), metaphorically came to mean the "distress arising from that condition, anguish." It is used in the plural, of various forms of distress, 2Cr 6:4; 12:10, and of "anguish" or distress in general, Rom 2:9; 8:35, RV, "anguish" for AV, "distress." The opposite state, of being in a large place, and so metaphorically in a state of joy, is represented by the word platusmos in certain Psalms as, e.g., Psa 118:5; see also 2Sa 22:20.
See DISTRESS.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g4928 Greek: sunoche

Anguish:

lit., "a holding together, or compressing" (sun, "together," echo, "to hold"), was used of the narrowing of a way. It is found only in its metaphorical sense, of "straits, distress, anguish," Luk 21:25, "distress of nations," and 2Cr 2:4, "anguish of heart."
See DISTRESS.

Note: Ananke is associated with thlipsis, and signifies a condition of necessity arising from some form of compulsion. It is therefore used not only of necessity but of distress, Luk 21:23; 1Th 3:7, and in the plural in 2Cr 6:4; 12:10.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g4729 Greek: stenochoreo

Anguish:

akin to A, No. 2, lit., "to crowd into a narrow space," or, in the Passive Voice "to be pressed for room," hence, metaphorically, "to be straitened," 2Cr 4:8; 6:12 (twice), is found in its literal sense in two places in the Sept., in Jos 17:15; Isa 49:19, and in two places in its metaphorical sense, in Jdg 16:16, where Delilah is said to have pressed Samson sore with her words continually, and to have "straitened him," and in Isa 28:20.
See DISTRESS, STRAITENED.

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g4912 Greek: sunecho

Anguish:

akin to A, No. 3, lit., "to hold together," is used physically of being held, or thronged, Luk 8:45; 19:43; 22:63; of being taken with a malady, Mat 4:24; Luk 4:38; Act 28:8; with fear, Luk 8:37; of being straitened or pressed in spirit, with desire, Luk 12:50; Act 18:5; Phl 1:23; with the love of Christ, 2Cr 5:14. In one place it is used of the stopping of their ears by those who killed Stephen.
See CONSTRAIN, HOLD, KEEP, PRESS, SICK(ly), STOP, STRAIT (be in a), STRAITENED, TAKE, THRONG.

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g3600 Greek: odunao

Anguish:

in the Middle and Passive Voices, signifies "to suffer pain, be in anguish, be greatly distressed" (akin to odune, "pain, distress"); it is rendered "sorrowing" in Luk 2:48; in Luk 16:24, 25, RV, "in anguish," for AV, "tormented;" in Act 20:38, "sorrowing."
See SORROW, TORMENT.
