Synonyms of "Issue" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between issue and matter and problem ?
A: Issue has a mild negative connotation, problem has a strong negative connotation, and matter is neutral (neither positive nor negative) but is usually used to ask politely what is wrong in this context.
Q: What is the difference between issue and question ?
A: I think the confusion comes from the fact that 问题 in Chinese is translated to both "issue" and "question," right? In English, "issue" can have several meanings. One definition is "a topic for discussion." Example: At the meeting, I'd like to address the issue of customer service. The other meaning is "a personal problem or difficulty." Example: I am having issues with my computer. On the other hand, a question is simply a statement that seeks an answer. Example: Could you please answer my question? I hope this helps!
Q: What is the difference between issue and problem and matter and trouble ?
A: Issue tends to be more negative than problem. If someone were being rude, or annoying you may hear "what's your issue?"

Matter isn't used outside specific phrases very often. "What's the matter" and "That doesn't matter" are the only times I hear it.

Trouble is kind of the same. "You're in trouble" and "Sorry to trouble you" are really the only time I hear it.
Q: What is the difference between I confirmed about this issue. and I have confirmed about this issue. ?
A: It is to do with the conjunction "have". With that conjunction you put the sentence past tense saying you already confirmed the issue before that moment.
Q: What is the difference between "issue" and "problem" and "trouble" ?
A: Problem = an unwelcome or harmful situation or matter. E.g. There's a problem with the machine = something is wrong with the machine.

An issue is still a problem, but it is something with more importance. E.g. Climate change is a current issue.

If you're not talking about an important matter, then sometimes you can use "issue" and "problem" the same way.
E.g. Money is not a problem = money is not an issue. "Issue" here sounds a bit better though.

Trouble = difficulty, or a problem that is as a result of difficulty.
E.g. I had trouble finding the house = I had difficulties in finding the house.
Both these sentences imply that there was a problem with finding the house.

I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions :)
