In brief: Sometimes
In general it is an infection, especially in the lungs, lymph nodes, speen and much of this can be painless.
If there is bone or joint invovlement then there can be painful. Even lung invovlement can be painful at time. Control of the infection can control the pain. It is found more often in some areas of the country like the ohio and mississippi river valleys.
