What's up everyone.
I have been using whey protein for almost 2 years now it is only recently when I have been feeling these abnormal side effects after consuming a glass of the whey mixture. The first product I used was USANA Whey protein shake powder. I did not have any abnormal symptoms after consuming the product. I switched to AMP Whey Protein and also did not feel any symptoms until I finished half the tub. It gradually got more intense the more I used it. At first it was just a tight feeling in my chest and throat, but it later started to make me have to vomit. I did my research and found that I am most likely allergic to whey protein, but I decided to try another brand considering it never happened before.
I switched to Gold Standard Whey Protein today in hopes of a different outcome but it was just the same. So I now have a whole new tub of Gold Standard Whey protein that I don't just want to throw away.
I'm not sure if I'm allergic to whey since I had no problems with it before, but does anyone know if I will get the same symptoms if I consume if differently (i.e. mixing it in oatmeal)? I guess the only way to find out is to try...
If anyone else had this issue, what are you using as a substitute if you have stopped using it? Any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks BB members.
