I've been getting some pretty bad headaches each night lately. The only thing that I can think it might be is from the whey protein I've been using. I think I've been keeping hydrated well enough. And my diet hasn't really changed much recently.

Let me know if you have any ideas. Meanwhile, I'm going to watch my carb and water intake to see if the problem may lie there.

BTW, the headaches are in the back of the head.

Are you lactose intolerant? That could be the cause of your headaches.

Dehydration would be the other possibility.

Thanks. I'll look at my diet more. I just wanted to be sure it wasn't from the protein shakes.

I agree, I have a constant headache wrestling season when I can't drink liquids a couple days before my matches.

Are you using a new shake?

Try stoping it for a week and see if goes away then youll know for sure
