Brush getting stuck

All of a sudden brushes started to have a strange behaviour. I can select any brush, but the cursor remains a small circle.


The outline of the brush I selected only appears when I press either the mouse or the tablet pen, and the keyboard commands don't work - when I try to make the brush smaller the fixed circle ouline gets smaller, but when I press down I get the effect of the other brush and in the same size is was before.


Plus, if I try to change the size myself on the tool preset the first stroke turns into an eraser stroke. 


I already updated photoshop, tried to repair creative cloud, disconected my tablet, connected it again and restarted my computer several times. I have no idea how to fix this.


Exemple: here the cursor was showing as a small circle, but when I press down I got this result, which would be the brush I had selected in size 1000.Screenshot 2021-03-14 at 13.55.47.png


Then when I change the size myself: one stroke as eraser, then a normal stroke
