Have you tried buying a smaller toothbrush? I think you need to consider using a flouride rinse like ACT as well. make sure you continue to take slow deep breaths as you try to brush and start with the toothbrush on the outside of your teeth near your cheeck.

Good luck

Ask your dentist to order you some spray topical anesthetic to use when you brush your teeth. It works.

My wife has the same problem but hers started after she gave birth. She can't explain it and she won't even let me look at her when she brushes.
