Due to Crohn's and tumors in my pancreas, I have a lot of colonoscopies, EGDs and EUS's. They always use Propofol to make me sleep during these tests. Every time I have Propofol I wake up with a massive headache that progresses into a very intense migraine for at least the remainder of that day and sometimes into the next day.

Is it possible that the Propofol is triggering a migraine?
DX changed from UC to Crohn's Dec, 2013. Diverticuli still present & inflamed.
Meds: Pentasa 3g/day, Lomotil 2tabs 3x/day, Questran 4g 2x/day, Atenolol, Celexa, Norco 5/325mg 4-5x/day, Valium 5mg PRN.
During an EGD and EUS, tumors were found on my pancreas which the doctor thinks are neuroendocrine tumors or NETs. Seen a Pancreatic Surgeon and having more biopsies taken.

I would imagine it's possible. I have had colonoscopies and I haven't noticed a link for me but that doesn't mean it's not a trigger for you.
