Default Whey/milk allergies

I get a substantial amount of protein (approx. 50% of my 175-200 gms/day) from shakes (True Protein WPI). The problem is I have sneezing fits about 15 minutes after I have a shake. I assume its an allergy to the milk proteins. If my only symptom is sneezing (pretty severe--10-15 minutes non stop) am I potentially suffering any other more seious or even cosmetic effects (water retention, joint problems, etc)? I dont like the pea protein powder taste and hate egg protein powders.

that I'm aware of, a true food allergy isn't going to cause sneezing but I'm not 100% sure and know just who I can ask

Thank you for the quick reply. I only sneeze after my shakes, and it occurs everytime. Ive used different blenders so its not that and the other ingredients are always water, berries and splenda.

Have you tried different proteins? I get some serious gastro problems with most whey proteins. So I primarily use a blend although I've managed to find a good whey that gives me no problems...and this took a lot of trial and error...and money, come to think of it.

If I had to take an uneducated stab at this, I'd say check your protein for MSG. If not MSG, maybe the fact that your are inadvertantly inhaling some of the powder (miniscule amounts) causing a reaction?

Something I ran across.

http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geu6jGpu...NNSp00_MSG.htm


"These OFTEN contain MSG or create MSG during processing:

Flavor(s) & Flavoring(s), Natural flavor(s) & flavoring(s), Natural pork flavoring, Bouillon, Natural beef flavoring, Stock, Natural chicken flavoring, Broth, Malt flavoring, Barley malt, Malt extract, Seasonings (the word "seasonings"), Carrageenan, Soy sauce, Soy sauce extract, Soy protein, Soy protein concentrate, Soy protein isolate, Pectin, Maltodextrin, Whey protein, Whey protein isolate, Whey protein concentrate, anything Protein fortified, Protease, Protease enzymes, anything Enzyme modified, Enzymes, anything Ultra-pasteurized, anything Fermented

Jack Samuels also warned us about low fat milk products with milk solids that contain MSG and about soaps, shampoos, and cosmetics. We also need to watch the binders and fillers in medications, nutrients, and supplements. "Reactions to MSG are dose related, i.e., some people react to even very small amounts." MSG-induced reactions can be delayed as much as 48 hours or can occur immediately after ingestion or exposure. "

Sneezing does sound like a hefty allergic response. I'm slightly allergic myself to lots of food items and the immediate response would be nasal congestion and sometimes immediate itchiness of the skin (peanuts and cashews especially)

There's other protein powders available, but most don't really taste well ... this is a reason I'm looking into supplementing with BCAAs myself as this will also bring down total protein requirements. It's both getting expensive and boring to eat nothing but fish , chicken, lean meat(s) & eggs especially when you're trying to keep calories (fats) down.

ETA: another symptom that seems to happen when ingesting too much allergic food items is getting overly dry eyes. This suddenly leapt out to me...
