No: No, they use numbing medicine like when you go to the dentist.

Mostly not: The most discomfort typically is at 2 times: getting blood artery access (typically get Lidocaine anesthesia first which decreases the needle poke pain), and lying flat after the angiogram :o) the process itself is painless, as there are no signficant nerve supply issues inside the blood vessels during the angiography.
