I recently lost 35 pounds but noticed my resting heart rate has changed significantly! From 90 to about 49-53. I'm concerned?

It is likely fine. Likely the heart rate decrease is due to the weight loss which is excellent. Another reason could be any medications you re on. If you generally feel well, and do not feel short of breath when exerting yourself, I do not think you need to worry. Read more...

I am always scared if my resting heart rate isn't below 60. Sometimes it's 75-80 then other mornings and nights it's 55-69. Should I be concerned?

Misinformed? You should be scared if your heart rate does not ever fluctuate. I think you may be misinformed about heart health and focusing on something that is nearly meaningless for a 24 year old male to be worrying about.

Resting heart rate 48bpm with concor pill, should I be concerned?
