In brief: Not usually

A lot depends on examination.
The xray itself is not painful. if examination involves injection of contrast obviously the pain of a needle. If fluoroscopic exam such as enema then there is some discomfort. In most cases technicians and doctors try to make you as comfortable as possible.
