In brief: ACS

Acute coronary syndrome (acs) is a clinical diagnosis, extremely unlikely in a 24 year old.
Leaky valve does not cause acs. Depending on degree of leakage & which valve, exercise intolerance may be due to leakage. Hr of 170 during exercise could be due to deconditioning (being out of shape), arrhythmia or even anxiety. Discuss with your doctor.
