How long have you been training? 

Whey protein, for me, doesn't affect my anxiety (FWIW I don't suffer from OCD but I do suffer from Social Phobia). Training however is another story. I tend to get that "exercise high" during strength and 'high intensity' cardio training thanks to endorphin's. I also tend to get restless and anxious afterwards. This article on livestrong(dotcom) talks about some reasons this can happen, and it makes a lot of sense.

I also found some other personal experiences having anxiety after exercise on reddit that may help.

I don't know how whey protein (or other protein supplements) affect the brain or if it could worsen anxiety. But I definitely experienced heightened anxiety after training because of my brains reaction to the exercise.
