In brief: Generally tolerated

It is generally tolerated by the overwhelming majority of patients under local anesthetic.
Sometimes, if patients are more nervous, oral or IV sedation can be used.

In brief: Not much!

If properly done by a rheumatologist, anesthesiologist, or pain specialist, the pain should be quite minor. I do these frequently for sacroiilac joint inflammation.
Few patients complain of pain.
