Is there anybody here with mild mitral valve prolapse and no other conditions? What treatment worked best for you? Thank you!

I was told I have mitral valve prolapse with clicks about 40 years ago. For a few years, I had to take a dose of antibiotics before going to the dentist but then new info came out saying there was no issue.
I've never had treatment and I have unusually good endurance so there's nothing wrong with my heart. At one point, my doctor said she thought it was about blood volume and I should make sure I stayed hydrated. I don't know if there's any validity to that or not.
Do you have symptoms? The only thing I've ever experienced is palpitations or skipped beats when I'm sleep deprived or anxious. I don't use an alarm clock and as long as I'm fully rested and managing stress there are no symptoms at all.
