In brief: No direct answer

A pain medication that commonly causes "stomach problems" in one patient, may have no untoward "stomach" effects on another.

Almost all of the Opioids, drugs like codeine, morphine, oxycodone cause some degree of nausea. There are many other classes of drugs that can really work on pain.

In brief: Many

Opioids (morphine, vicodin, percocet, oxycontin, fentanyl etc) commonly cause nausea.
In most patients these effects diminish over a week. Nsaids (advil, naprosyn) decrease stomach mucus production leading to heartburn and possibly ulcers when used longterm. Stomach protective meds can help. Meds like gabapentin, lyrica, (pregabalin) cymbalta, desipramine, elavil, topamax dont bother stomach as much.
