In brief: Bowel Rest
Pancreatitis is usually treated by allowing nothing to be taken by mouth, adequate fluid administration and pain medication, usually given intravenously.
Because it is diagnosed by way of blood tests and x-rays, i think it is safe to assume that most people cannot diagnose it on their own, but if you have any suspicion of having it, i'd say go straight to an emergency room.
