Hello stardreamt and welcome to our boards.
We can't offer speculation about what might be the cause of your partner's symptoms and if this is still unclear, hopefully his clinic can soon explain to him what might be happening. Although the symptoms of HPV can differ from person to person, what you've described in your email isn't characteristic of the virus.
Regardless, you're right in that it's a good idea for you to speak with your own health care provider to see if there is anything they recommend for you. General STI screening, for example, would be good to consider just as a precaution (not specifically due to any symptoms mentioned in your post...).
Re: your own HPV diagnosis some years ago, you might find it helpful to review some previous discussion on this board about the immune response to the virus: http://www.ashastd.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=18
Hope this helps and good luck to you both.
