Any difference between "breoite" and "tinn"?

I understand "tinn" has a broader meaning and I guess it's more commonly used. Am I correct in thinking "breoite" is a more technical term?

In Munster Irish, breoite is generally used for “sick”, and tinn is generally used for “sore”. I don’t think that either term is more technical than the other.
