I agree with the responses you had from Dr. Hook.  This additional information doesn't change anything.

HIV is never transmitted by kissing, regardless of gingivitis or other sores in the mouth, and your symptoms are not even close to those expected in someone with a new HIV infection.  If your symptoms are at all related to the kissing event, it is the result of anxiety about it -- but definitely not HIV.

Do your best to accept the reassurance you have had from both me and Dr. Hook.  There will be no further comments or discussion about it.

Well, I guess you're just going to have to decide whether to trust the scientific evidence and advice from respected experts, or the unprofessional information you found in a google search.
