Been doing it for years i have reflux also but certain times when brush my teeth i gag for 2 min trying not to throw up why?

More sensitive: The acidity of the acid reflux and just possibly a hyperactive gag reflex may be creating your problems.

Is there such a thing as brushing your teeth too often?

Definitely: I occasionally see patients who brush their teeth either too often or for too long a period of time. Anything in life can be overdone and cause problems.
