Acid reflux, heart burn on drinking protein shakes, vomiting episodes. Suggestions?

I am a weightlifter, but I cannot have any kind of protein shakes/bars without having severe acid reflux/ heartburn . This had never happened until about 6 months ago where I vomited after consuming a shake before a hard work out. Ever since this incident I have had these problems. Note that I had consumed shakes/bars for 5+ years and did not have any problems until the past few months. Thanks for your help!

hello.. it may due to some ingredient in your protein which may not be suiting you.. make sure you choose a protein which is lactose and gluten free.. do not consume a very large quantity of protein at one time... have half scoop/ 1 scoop max at once..break the doses throughout the day..avoid milk and wheat and eat fruits, nuts, salads to prevent acidity. take a yakult daily...drink plenty of water.. rest well..
