In brief: Yes and no

Anxiety is a real disorder; and it is one that can make you hyper-aware of normal body function.
Anxiety does not cause knee pain, but it certainly can magnify your concern if discomfort is felt for whatever the real cause. The mind can convince you of many ailments. Your suffering should not be dismissed, as help is truly possible with a mental health professional. Best of luck!
