Brief Answer:
You need medications. I recommend Bisoprolol.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you should take medications to improve these symptoms caused by mitral valve prolapse.
I think you should start to take atenolol. It will improve palpations and also improve anxiety.
You also should measure the blood pressure because your symptoms seem like you may be suffering from hypertension.

Bisoprolol may be a good alternative for you.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
