Yes, see a doc.: A normal heart rate is generally between 60-110. Sometimes athletes will have somewhat lower resting heart rates, but 35 is too low and not normal. This could be a structural issue with your heart or an issue with the way your heart conducts electricity to keep it beating normally. Especially considering your family history, I would be evaluated by your PCP or Cardiologist as soon as you can.
