I would say yes if it happens shortly after you take it. What kind do you take? I have experienced that problem in the past (Met-Rx). However not with better quality powders like Isopure, ISS Research Whey, Syntha-6. Isopure is best but is expensive. ISS Research Whey is good and cheaper.

I take dynamatize elite. do you know if this is a good brand or not?
I chose it because it tastes good and it's cheap but I didn't know that there would be big differences in qulity between brands.

I've taken dymatize's 12 hour protein and it is one of the worst I've ever had. I returned it. Their High Protein cereal isn't too bad. Try something a little better quality it will cost about 10 to 20 cents more per serving but will taste better, digest better, give little no to gas (unless it's got a ton of fiber) and often these powders would be enhanced with additional BCAAs and L-Glutamine for better recovery. I highly recommend Isopure it has 50 grams of protein per serving, it is a whey isolate (fastest absorbtion), 4.6 grams of L-Glutamine, all your BCAAs (Leucine, Iso-Leucine, Valine etc.), it has half a serving of your daily vitamins, mixes with a spoon and tastes like chocolate milk. I've tried many and this is the best. Shop around and you can get a tub online for what a tub of syntha-6 would cost in the mall. A cheaper powder that is of good quality is ISS Research's whey it has 45ish grams of protein, glutamine peptides and BCAAs. Dymatize is so cheap for a reason.

I have used Dymatize as well. I don't think it is very good at all. Matter of fact the stuff I got says isolate when it really isn't. It is a mix of isolate and concentrate but because the isolate is first on the ingredients they get away with the ad for it. I can also tell when I mix it because it looks clumpy and it looks like someone just had the runs if you know what I mean? I tend to travel between ON, Animal, and True Protein. Right now I have ON Pro Complex. The Isolate is the better stuff if you can fork over the cash for it.
