Can anyone validate the following statement as accurate?

"Experiencing jaw and tongue fatigue when talking and eating, means that your tongue and jaw muscles are weak. Weak muscles is basic characteristic for a diagnosis of metabolic myopathy. Also, the muscles that stabilize the joint become fatigued from overwork, which can happen if you habitually clench or grind your teeth. So, this adds to condition of having weak and fatigue muscles. You may feel pain every time you talk, chew, or yawn, due to muscle spasm resulting from TMJ. Muscle spasm can bring on swallowing difficulties, too." - Web search

I've had TMJ on and off since my BFS started 14 months ago so don't worry about it. I'm sure plenty of others on here can also testify to TMJ. Sometimes I even feel like I can't speak properly with it but it goes away but cab spark if I'm stressed out. Usually accompanied by twitching of the calves, arms, and right eyelid
