Is a heart rate of 49 beats per minute healthy for a 20 year old ? Should I be worried ?

Is a heart rate of 49 beats per minute healthy for a 20 year old? I was just wondering if a heart rate of 49 beats per minute is normal. I am 5 4 weigh around 118 pounds and I don t do any kind of sports and I have read that a low heart rate is good if your an athlete, but i am not. Should I be worried?

It isn't startling, no. A "normal" heart rate is 60-100 beats per minute. Right now you are in what is termed bradycardia (slow heart rate), because you are on the cusp of 50, i am not concerned. if you were below 40, i would be. Prepare for a pacemaker later on in life :-)
