Possible: You should see your doctor ASAP for an evaluation. I would recommend prophylactic treatment for chlamydia.

Probably not: While oral chlamydia can occur, it is uncommon, and oral to genital transmission is rare, if it happens at all. So your partner's chlamydia probably didn't come from you, assuming no vaginal or anal sex. Sometimes chlamydia is assumed based on symptoms, without actual testing. If your partner has nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), it could be from oral sex but nonchlamydial.

It still would be a good idea for you to be treated, if that hasn't been done. A single 1 gram oral dose of azithromycin will do it. Better safe than sorry.

Misinformed?: No. That would be impossible. Chlamydia is only contagious at the site of infection. It does not travel to other sites or fluids in the body.
