Jaw has been hurting, swollen face, fractured neck and jaw. What is going on?

my boyfriends jaw has been hurting. he cant open his mouth all the way. its been like this for 3 weeks now and pain is still there. its swollen all on his left side of his face & like below his ear. hes went to an ENT doctor & they said he believed it was a fractured neck or jaw bone. So he went to his back doctor today & he said it wasn t his neck. he is only 27 years old. hes had shoulder surgery , knee surgery, & just found out his back is fractured. we don t understand because he doesn t do anything for this stuff to be happening to him! hes unemployed & has been for a few years. he always does feel good. what do you think could be going on? hes also recebtly had two nose bleeds too!
