Probably normal: Mitral Valve Prolapse is asymptomatic in most people, but sometimes causes palpitations and chest pain, more commonly in women. There are evaluations that can be done making sure nothing more severe is occurring. If problematic, there are medications that can reduce these symptoms. See your doctor since they seem to be bothering you.

See your cardiologist: chest pain is never normal and if they occur daily you need to contact your cardiologist right away.
