A member asked:

My resting heart rate is 55-60 when sitting. used to be around 70. echo was normal and no thyroid issue. is this normal if i don't exercise much (but has energetic kids)? blood pressure normal. often tired but no dizziness. i take lexapro for anxiety?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

In active healthy adults with excellent cardiovascular health it is not unusual for the resting heart rate to be in the range of 50-60. With exercise the rate of increase of the heart rate can indicate your cardiac fitness and ability to adapt with vigorous exercise. The testing mentioned as being negative is reassuring and supports the information mentioned above.
