My heart rate has dropped from 54 BPM to 44 BPM over the last month. I have had a cardio workup and everything was fine. What could cause this?

In brief: R U an Athlete?

Technically, you suffer from bradycardia or a resting hr less than 60.
This may be a pathologic condition or may represent an very well conditioned heart (often in athletes) that does not need to pump as fast to deliver the amount of oxygen to the tissues. Talk to your doctor.
