Post-run Surge and head rush/allergy attack

Hey gang,
I recently took up running (up to 3 times a week for 20 minutes) as part of my exercise routine. Since it’s been warm out, after a good run I always come back with some sneezing due to the pollen in the air and my allergies. The problem occurs when I drink a half or a full serving of Surge afterwards; the allergies seem to get 10 times worse. The sneezing/watery eyes/runny nose goes out of control, and I feel I have a huge head rush for roughly 20 minutes. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it because I’m refueling my muscles and my body is free to work on the allergies? Any feedback is welcome.

Most likely it’s due to the one of the proteins in surge (whey). It’s a milk protein and not that uncommon for people to react to in one way or the other.
