Some recognized side effects of IV propofol
include: stinging near the injection site, nausea
as a side effect becomes significant only if propofol was injected near the eye (periocular injections along with sedation), otherwise not directly related.
There are other possibilities though: such as allergy to propofol but there would have been other symptoms when the injection was given like feeling hot and itchy throughout, loss in blood pressure etc that you did not have; and allergy to latex that you would have had significant exposure to during this procedure. If latex allergy
is likely, you can get a blood test
for specific IgE to latex, or a skin test followed by glove challenge if indicated.
I would be glad to answer subsequent queries if you have any.
