Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

In brief: Heart rate

At your age a low heart rate of 99 is a little unusual.
Your primary md could start your evaluation with an ekg. I would also consider a non cardiac cause such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. I would also think you can achieve a much higher rate than 120. You didn't mention how hard you were exercising.

In brief: Your resting

Heart rate is abut high but otherwise no concerns from heart rate standpoint.
..Regular exercise will lower resting heart rate over time.
