Question / Help Massive mouse lag in game when streaming.

I have a strong PC build and my games run perfectly fine. However, when I stream although my fps is stable at 60fps or above, its impossible to play games like Overwatch. As soon as I stream, when I move my mouse in game it takes literally 1-2 seconds for it to register and makes aiming impossible. When I alt-tab and tab back in my mouse seems to fix itself but then the issue re occurs after 2-3 seconds.
