Yes: Bone spurs: there are two types, those that occur with an arthritic joint and those that occur where a tendon or fascia attaches. Both can be very painful not necessarily because the spur itself hurts but because what i may b pressing against. Spurs that hit a nerve can be especially painful. In a joint, spurs may irritate the capsule or synovium which is rather sensative.

Yes: Bone spurs can be very painful and they can form from any bone. Examples are heel spur, spur between toes, on spine in shoulder and on and on... Get it checked, some are really easy to remove.
