Grinding one's teeth is a separate issue from TMJ, although one could certainly have/do both.
Years ago, I was told I grind my teeth and had a night guard. I ground so hard, I broke it in about a month. Too expensive and uncomfortable for me to want another one, so I just ignored it. I no longer grind my teeth in my sleep and have been checked for TMJ twice with no signs whatsoever.
IMHO, if there is any relationship between clusters and teeth-grinding, it would be that many grinders do so in reaction to stress, and being in cycle is certainly stressful.
