I am wondering about what structure i need to use when I want to express an inconvenience that i experienced. Is it correct to say, : I have / feel an inconvenience to bring my toothbrush. : I have/ feel an inconvenience to bring my toothbrush. : I have an inconvenience bringing my toothbrush. : I have an inconvenience that i bring my toothbrush.

Instead of saying “it is inconvenient for me to bring my brush”

You are not using "inconvenience" with the usual correct meaning. It means the general quality, and not a specific feeling, object or action. This means that "I have inconvenience..." is not idiomatic.

It may be possible to use a very long sentence like

If I brought my toothbrush I would experience inconvenience.

But this is not a normal sentence. But you already know the right answer: the adjective is how this is expressed:

It's inconvenient for me to bring my brush.
