Default Issues with Jaw muscles and popping TMJ

I recently started having an issue with my jaw. I have some muscle weakness and pain in my jaw. I find myself grinding my teeth and clenching my teeth. I also get a popping sensation in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) on the right side. It gets worse in the evening but is there all day. I spoke to the neuro and speech therapist at my last clinic and they do not feel it is ALS-related. I am not sure I agree with them and neither does my GP. Anyone else have this problem?
