What the heck is HIV Gingivitis? I tried to look it up and only found Gingivitis which we all know is common.

It's the long term effect of plague. I did find that people with uncontrolled diabeties, pregnancy, poor dental hygiene and misaligned teeth are at more risk for gingivitis, but I don't see anything about HIV having a direct connection with Gingivitis.

If the thought behind the question is...'I have gingivitis and I think it might be a symptom of HIV', no it isn't. If you are worried about HIV, go test, symptoms don't tell you anything. Also go see your dentist.
