Yes. Small pinch when local anesthesia injected. Slightly larger pinch when needle enters the joint. See radiologyinfo.Org.
Yes, but... Not that much. An arthrogram performed by an experienced physician should not be very painful. I have done over 15,000 arthrograms in the past 10 years, and most of my patients say it usually is no more painful than a flu shot.
