In brief: Need follow up

Your symptom is not specific of anything.
But, people mv prolapse do have a lot of atypical symptoms. Only thing anyone with mv prolapse is regular follow up with echocardiogram. As long you don't have a significant valve leak and heart failure symptoms you don't need to worry. If you have heart rhythm problems that can be treated as well.
