In brief: Not likely from MVP
The symptoms your describing are not likely to come from your mild mvp; most likely muscle spasm (intercostal--muscles in-between your ribs).
If you are physically fit/active and able to exercise w/o difficulty, then it is even more reassuring that it is not heart related. Good, deep breathing exercises, stretching/chin-up type of activities may help. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck.
