In brief: Bradycardia

A doctor's exam can tell you lots of things about your slow heart rate.
People can have heart rate normally if they do regular exercises, if they are on certain medications that can cause slow heart rate.Also if they have sinus node dysfunction , as well as if they have complete heart block. Most importantly if they have vagus stimulation for any reason.

In brief: A few things...

An experienced doctor can narrow down the diagnoses depending on how slow, regular, or irregular your heart rate is.
Also, your medical history, medications, etc. Can lead to some conclusions. However, the best next test is an ekg to really examine the heart rhythm.
