Going with E.
Got stuck between D and E. But in D their seems to be referring incorrectly to patients.

Which is wrong here. According to the rules for which, if the clause is removed the sentence can make sense on it own. This is not the case here. Hence That is necessary.

Also there is a pronoun error. Their doesnot specify whether analgesics or patients are relieving the pain.
