In brief: Metformin

Metformin sometimes relieves pancreatic pain by acting as an insulin receptor sensitizer, thereby reducing the requirement for the pancreas to work so hard to release insulin.
It's not a pain reliever, per-se, but gives the pancreas a "rest," reducing pancreatic action which often reduces the pain.
