Maybe try almond milk or cashew milk with your protein shakes? Then if you still feel sick, you can know that it is likely the protein powder rather than what you are mixing it with.

If you eat combinations of things, you can't figure out what's making you sick. Try JUST milk, no protein, and see how you handle that.

Do what Julie said.  Try an elimination diet.  Milk only, and see how you react.  Protein powder mixed with water, almond milk, soy milk, or anything else other than creature milk, and see what happens.  You may be able to handle a small amount of lactose, or you may be totally intolerant at the moment.  There are non-whey based protein powders that you can try.

Some people get lactose-intolerant and stay that way.  For others, it gradually goes away after months/years.

Try drinking the milk plain to see what happens.

I developed allergies to dairy (i.e whey proteins, cheese) and it took a while to discover that 

See if yogurt makes you sick also. 

Sometimes the additive - flavors, sweeteners - are the issues...
