Need root canal

Is it painful to get a root canal?
I guess I will need a root canal treatment. I had some serious dental procedures done repeatedly on one of my bottom molars. Now the gums near my molar are seen inflamed. I have severe pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold and tenderness to touch and chewing. I took Tylenol to reduce the pain.
From my childhood itself, I am very nervous about getting dental procedures. Last time, when I visited my dentist in Rosedale to get a filling done, I took local anaesthesia.
I have heard people say that the root canal is a very painful process. Is it so? Will the pain persist post-treatment? Is there any need for taking special care after taking root canal treatment? Is there any type of foods that I should avoid after the treatment? Please give me wisdom in this matter.
