    Whey protein or protein powder causing Sinus?

    Hi all - My first post here.

    I have recently started taking Muscletech's Nitrotech Whey Isolate and Now's Egg White Protein Powder (mix it together) to see some gains, however, just a week into it and my Sinus erupted. I could barely breathe through my nose and had to continually use nasal spray to get back to my normal self.

    I haven't taken the mix for a week now and it's starting to get better. I am planning to introduce the Whey Isolate back to see which one is the culprit.

    I couldn't find much on Google, hence bringing it up on the forums. Looking forward to some feedback here. Thanks!

    I wouldn't TOUCH sinus spray tho... It can really fuk up your smelling (seriously). Maybe it's better now but my dad always told me it took away his smelling for over a year

    I drink skinny latte every morning so it may not be milk related.

    Could it be the mix of Nitrotech Whey Islolate + Egg white protein powder acting up? I tend to take less sugar but I find the Whey flavor to be sweet hence I mix it up with the protein powder to flatten it a bit.

    Agree with you on this. It does take away the smelling sensation for a day or two.

    Food allergies will cause inflammation in the sinuses. Wait till your symptoms pass, then if you add whey back in and your sinus issues pop up again you have found your culprit. I personally at this time no longer use whey because I was having this same issue for about 2 years, using sinus sprays and all kinds of things, then finally stopped eating dairy and with in a week the symptoms miraculously diminished.
