Hello, it is impossible to diagnose through internet but from what you describe, your symptoms may be related to the redundant anterior mitral valve leaflet. Some patients that have redundant (larger than usual) mitral leaflets can have a prolapse that is the movement of the large leaflet toward the left atrium during the ventricular contraction. Those patients may have different cardiac symptoms but all of them are usually benign. These symptoms include chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, exercise intolerance, and numbness in the arms. If the physician rules out other important causes for these symptoms, the recommendations for the patients usually include a gradual and consistent change in lifestyle: aerobic exercise training, avoidance of caffeine or high dose of chocolate, avoid alcohol, and reduce stress.

Good luck.
