I'm 21. I used to take whey proteins. It gives 60 gm of protein per 100gm, but I used to take only 15 gm of the powder. Then I decided to increase my intake to 90gm of the powder so I would get around 50 gm of protein. But after month I started getting these sudden pains in the left side of my chest, it used to last for just a couple of seconds but it used to be really painful. Never felt anything like that before, so I stopped taking the supplement. Still have this heaviness on the left side of chest and its been over 2 months since I stopped the supplement. Just want to know if whey protein supplements can increase cholestrol and whether they harm the heart in anyway? Also I've read about ppl getting 200gm of protein in their diet(thorugh supplements and foods), is that too much? The RDA is only around 65gm, will all that extra protein harm the heart in anyway?I'm new to this forum so if i posted in the wrong, overlook that.
