I would like to know if anyone has issues with mvp? Lately, when I exercise or stressed my heart starts racing. It scares me sometimes, and it takes a while for my heart to regulate. Sometimes I feel like I am going to have an anxiety attack

What makes you suspect MVP?  Have you been diagnosed with MVP (mitral valve prolapse)?

I think it is unlikely that MVP would cause your symptoms.  I believe most who have "minor" MVP don't feel anything from it.

I have suffered from a Mitral Valve Regurgitation (leakage) and while it may have contributed to my enlarged left atrium and atrial fibrillation, I am not aware of any symptom I felt that was due to any instance of leakage.  I am aware of AFib, and as I suggested that may have been due to the cumulative effects of the leakage over a number of years.

I agree with Jerry. You need to have a holter monitor or stress test to figure out what is happening.
