Mild Mitrovalve Prolapse is extremely common, probabably 3/4 of the population your age could have this diagnosis. This means there is a very small amount of blood leaking back after the heart beat, and even people with moderate to severe leakage don't experience heart pain except with vigorous exercise. Usually, symptoms of severe MVP are extreme breathlessless with exercise and weight gain from fluid buildup.
None of us on this forum are qualified to advise regarding drugs, but I'm betting ibuprofen wouldn't either help or hurt.
