You could say that their transgressions make you nervous (bIt) or uneasy (jotHa').

Or, you could say that because the Romulans transgress, we/you must be vigilant (Dugh) and careful (yep).

You could say that they annoy (nuQ/yIv), irritate (berghmoH) or even anger you (QeHmoH).

Or, if things are really serious you could say that they scare you (ghIj) or that you dread them (Haj).

You could also say that you expect (pIH), predict from evidence/reasoning ('aq) or just from a hunch (ghut) that things will get worse, or that you believe (Har) that the Romulans are plotting something.

Subject: [tlhIngan Hol] expressing "to worry"

I want to say "the romulan transgressions worry me".

The noun {rejmorgh} meaning "worrywart", means according to m-w "a
person who is inclined to worry unduly", so I don't think I could play
with it in the sentence I written.

On the other hand, we have the verb {baw'Ha'}, meaning "be
uncomfortable, be worried, be hesitant".

If this verb didn't have the meaning "be hesitant", I would be ok
using it to express "worried" in the sense I'm talking about.

But the problem is that the romulans don't make me hesitant. The make
me @!#! worried.

So, what the @!#! should I use ?
