My resting heart rate is around 50 bpm but my blood pressure is around 122/78. Is this unhealthy?

    If you are fairly healthy and active then it is probably fine. But we really can't tell you that for sure online. – L.B. Mar 20 '17 at 14:37

    Go and talk to a doctor of your choice about it. They will know best what to do. We can't provide medical diagnosis on Health.SE. Only a doctor can! – Narusan Mar 20 '17 at 15:06
  • What the others said. Probably great numbers but for all we know they're because you're taking meds or have a serious medical condition. This is why we can't answer the question. – Carey Gregory Mar 21 '17 at 3:31
  • My resting heart rate is 45. So don't worry, it's not necessarily bad; but only a doctor can say for sure if it is natural for you or dangerous. – Aganju Mar 21 '17 at 4:11
