Violet gave you some great information. I really hope you can get this figured out and start feeling better.
Do you know if your friend had mono anytime around the time you were involved in kissing? If your friend had mono or active EBV, it is very likely that you caught it too. Your symptoms do sound a lot like mono/EBV, but like violet said, these symptoms are present in a lot of other illnesses too, that is why it is difficult to diagnose sometimes. I wish the doctor would have done some bloodwork for mono and EBV. I'm glad you are seeing an infectious disease doc in September, although that probably seems like a long time to wait when you are worried and not feeling well.
Hang in there and let us know if you have any other questions.
