Not really. Only the first week or so when you get your braces on and they tighten em'.

At the beginning, I heard they do.
But you'll get used to them.

For some yes, for others no. Most do complain when they get tightened. But that wears off for most.

They hurt for a few days every time they're tightened. Not. Fun. Tylenol or something like that helps, it's not TOO bad.

I had braces and they barely hurt when you put them on (they slip rings on your teeth and glue them on) and they will only hurt when you tighten them and be sore a few days after. I got them in second grade and didn't cry or say it hurt that bad.

Sometimes, but they're really not a big deal. You forget you have them after a couple days. They become as much a part of you as your appendix :)

depends on your pain tolerance, and why you have them. Its hurts for some people more than others, because they're pulling your teeth is a specific way depending on why you need them. it hurts a little every time they tighten them. the first tightening is worse than actually getting them on. It doesn't take long to forget they're there.

Little bit when they put the rings around your back teeth. But is not a big pain. The first day with ur braces on you will feel strage but one day is enough to get used to.

They do for a few days. If they tighten they a lot in one time then they hurt

Mine hurt for about a month after I got them and for the first five times or so I went to get them tightened they hurt for a day or two. But by the end I was doing well with no major pain or anything. So yeah... I'd say that hurt at least at some point for most people. :)
