Could TMJ joint pinch the nerves & blood vessels, preventing sweat glands on chin from secreting sweat and prevent nutrients to chin?

Highly unlikely: The tmj's are a completely separate and enclosed system from the chin area. The nerves associated with these joints are distinct and separate from nerves that control sweating. The skin around the chin may not have as many sweat glands per surface area as other parts of the body.
