Default Anyone get stomach problems with protein drinks?

I bought some whey protein mix at the store and have been drinking shakes instead of snacking. I mix a scoop with milk. I don't know if it is a component of the mix or if it is too much milk.but I get gassy, bloated. I was wondering if anyone else had that and what you did

No I just tried the one. I will compare it to others next time. Maybe it is just the brand

Are you lactose intolerant. I was told whey was better for lactose intolerance but even a small amount will give me gas, bloat and even cramps. You may want to consider other options if it continues with other shakes

You could be like I am and can't tolerate artificial sweeteners which are often in those protein drinks. That is why I had to stop taking them.

You might have an issue with whey. Even if you can drink milk just fine, having a higher concentration of that component of the milk might bring up an issue you don't normally have.

I'd say try some soy protein, or vegetable/hemp protein isolate and see if that helps. There are lots of options out there.
