Last night about 40 minutes after my PWO shake, I noticed that my throat, my inner ears, my eyes, and my sinuses were extremely itchy. In a few more minutes my throat felt like it was closing up, there was a noticable difference in my voice, and my sinuses were extremely clogged. Then I started getting a pain like indigestion in my chest, my stomach was in knots, and I was having minor difficulty breathing. I ended up taking some benedryl and passing out. I still have some stomach discomfort today but I feel a ton better.
I've had a reaction like this before, not quite to this extent, but the only thing I could link it to was the whey I was using. So I started using a more expensive whey and it didn't happen again. Then I bought some cheaper stuff this time, used it a few times and I was fine, but last night I had a wicked reaction after taking it. Is this just coincidence because I didn't have a reaction for a few days taking it, or could there be something in "cheaper" whey products that I am allergic to? Has anyone experienced this before?
Thanks for the help in advance.
