Yes: Yes due to the fact the wart will attract new blood vessels and nerves to the infected skin.

Often times: They may feel like you are walking on a pebble.

Not always: But often due to the fact that they often are on weight bearing areas of foot that are under a lot of pressure. This can cause pain while walking.

They can. : Sometimes they hurt, other times they are completely asymptomatic. If you think you have one, ask your general doctor, a podiatrist, or a dermatologist. Sometimes it's not even a wart, just a callus with a core!

Depends: Depending on how long the plantar warts have been present and how deep the virus has penetrated can determine whether they are painful. If the virus is deep and has had the opportunity to fester beneath the surface, although mainly vascular, it can be quite thick and hard resulting in pain when pressure applied. If the wart is adjacent to a nerve it can also irritate and cause pain.
