Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JustAnswer.Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.
I understand your concern. In old days we used to consider a normal heart rate anywhere between 60 and 100. That's not the case, actually, and now we know that a normal person's heart rate may vary anywhere between mid 40s to late 90s. Some of the healthy individuals may be outside of that range too. The most important thing is that, it should be a sinus rhythm and it should respond to activity or exercise. Your normal ecgs are quite reassuring and I don't believe you have to be concnered about an underlying heart disease just because of this lowish rate.
Please let me know if you have other, related queries. I will be happy to answer. Thanks.
Yes, that is not an uncommon thing even in someone who's not very active. I have seen many young patients with such low readings and most of them do not have an underlying rhythm disorder.
Something would have been picked up on investigations for sure. I can assure you that your heart rate readings are not alarming at all.
You don't have to lose your sleep over this.
Pleasure talking to you :)
All the best.
