Mvp check in with widow maker stent

Have had chest pain since 97. I am a 40 year old male. I am 180 at 5' 9.5". I quit smoking 4.5 years ago and I have been drinking water primarily for 2 + years now no pop or sugary stuff. Dr. found damage (disease) on top of heart when putting in stent for 95% blocked artery. Before that he diagnosed me with MVP. I take Metoprolol and Isosorbide to make the heart not hurt. But things like petrol fumes, or once my girlfriend spilled her perfume and it makes my heart hurt for days. During this time I cannot exercise or it will exacerbate it. Sex also sets these symptoms in motion. Dr. has not been able to isolate. Just checking in here in case something happens to me. This really messes with my happiness.

Did the doctor explain in more detail the "damage (disease) on top..." ?

MVP shouldn't cause the symptoms you list, imo.  Many suffer from MVP and don't even know it, do everything they might do physically if they didn't have MVP.  

Has you cardiologist (Hope you have consulted a specialist) discussed the possible need to consider surgery to repair the valve?  Surgery is avoided, if the valve problem is not life threatening or debilitating. I read in your post the latter is descriptive of your case.
