I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

My heart rate stays around 50, is that good ?

My heart rate is really slow. Its stays around 50. A doctor told me she wished hers was that low and that just meant my heart didn't have to work as hard. Is that true? Or do I have a weak heart. Just looking for a 2nd opinion. I was very athletic all through school. In track and wrestling. I m 22 now, not so athletic any more.

Generally a low resting heart rate isn't a bad thing, it can just mean you are in relatively good cardiovascular fitness. As long as you feel fine all the time, this alone is not cause for concern.
