Hi,
You should get a check up by a dentist to know whether any tooth is decayed or not or you have generalized attrition/abrasion of your teeth. If you have generalized sensitivity you can use Sensodyne/ Colgate sensitive/ Senquel F tooth pastes twice daily till the sensitivity resolves.

Dear friend.
Sensodyne or any other desensitzing toothpaste is not going to take care of the sensitivity caused by decay, fracture or crack in the tooth.
These tooth paste are used only for minor sensitivities where the above conditions are absent.
First thing to do is get thorough dental check up done to rule out this things.
Is sensitivity generalized or in any particular tooth?
When does it aggravate?
Does it stay even after removal of stimulus e.g. cold water?
Is there sensitivity to heat as well?

Dont neglect. Show to a good dentist as soon as possible. You may be having caries or something which requires urgent attention.

it is because of the loss of protective layer on the teeth. it doubt it is sensitive teeth because during brushing there will be no symptoms. while you eat or drink you will have symptom. check this first

I have a similar problem but sensitivity in my teeth has been there for months.My gums had receded over a period of time due to forceful brushing. I am very careful to use the extra sensitive brush, no force while brushing. The sensitivity is still there. I met two dentists. One of them suggested that sensitivity will be there for some time and then it will get ok if I do not brush hard. The other one said that once enamel is eroded and I start feeling the cold sensation, it is not likely that it will go away so I have to just take precautions as it cannot be cured.

If this is the first time u r having sensitive tooth and suddenly started, and no other problem like bleeding etc, maybe its due to some  very hot or cold thing u ate or drank. wait few days. it may go away. use special toothpaste for sensitive teeth and  brush very very gently.
