Diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse. On medication. Sudden throbbing pain from the chest while exercising. What is happening?

I am 41 yrs old, about 5 6 140lbs. excercise regularly (such as The Shred dvds, etc). Have been diagnosed with Mitral valve prolapse , but take no meds for it. My concern is that, about 3wks ago or so, as I was wking out I got a sudden throb of pain in middle of my chest . No other pain, shortness of breath(other than to be expected since I was excercising), no dizziness etc... It has happened since maybe four more times or so. Today, I barely even got started in my wkout and it did it again, only more than just one throb, several. When I stop the exersion, it goes away?? What is your opinion?

Hi,your symptoms are being caused on exertion due to MVP.consult your Cardiologist and get yourself an ECG and Echocardiography done.Also in consultation with your doctor you can start on a small dose of Betablocker medication.These measures should help you.Nothing much to worry,you are going to be fine.Take care and wish you good health.
