Yes I have had this and for months I have not had any pain.
I don't know what kind of toothbrush you're using but I found electric toothbrushes very painful on my gums and they would bleed. So now I use a manual toothbrush and it has helped. As well as making sure you're brushing your gums properly (circular motions) it's very easy to actually brush too hard without realising. What can also help is trying to floss most days and be very gentle with it and build up your usage so your gums won't be irritated.
As for other things make sure you don't eat loads of citric food as the acid can irritate your mouth. Steer clear of fizzy drinks and sweets.
I really hope this helps

many years ago went through the same thing, i had some brandy in the house and soaked some cotton wool in the brandy and put it over the painful part. the next day the pain was gone. but it came back every now and again but i did the same thing and it always went away. it eventually stopped. try doing that.

Awe I can't use brandy I'm a Muslim but i don't have an infection cos my dentist would have said. The pains on and off but what's weird is during the day I have no pain it's when I sleep at night I can't. Sleep

That doesn't sound like typical gum issue-why would they only hurt at night? Did your dentist take any xrays to check for potential dental problems? Recurring pain at night is normally a symptom of a dental issue rather than a gum issue. Hope this helps.
