Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Are you a trained athlete. Are you on any medication. If not this resting pulse rate is very low. Do you have giddiness, palpitations. You should get looked at by your Doctor and also get an ECG taken just to be safe. Do deep breathing exercises twice to thrice a day to stay fit. Eat healthy.
