Welcome to HCM

Protein drinks may cause increase in anxiety which may manifest as palpitations. Heavy doses of protein especially whey may cause severe anxiety. If the problem is really bothersome then I would advise you to decrease his protein intake. Other side effects like hairloss may be due to protein also. Heavy doses may be the reason of severe anxiety he is facing. Decrease his protein intake and if problem persists even then consult a Psychiatrist.
