    I know this sounds weide and you may think im a total nutter but whenever I brush my teeth I wanna gag! :toothpick: I think its the metal in my electric toothbrush that makes me sick cos my midwife says that anything metal can do it. will have to start eating with plastic knives and forks or fingers.:rofl:

    Who else gets this?
