Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Sinus tachycardia is more likely related to POTS.
Mitral Valve Prolapse is usually from birth / when small, it could have been easily missed.
She may not anything for the present - except follow up.
She will need Infective Endocarditis Prophylaxis...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
