Dr. Leslie Mcpherson
Specializes in Family Medicine
Need evaluation: Average normal heart rate is between 60-100. However, healthy athletes can have resting heart rates in the 50s and high 40s but NOT 20s. Assuming you are calculating your heart rate correctly and given your age and heart rate, I strongly recommend you be seen by a doctor right away.
