Hello doctor,

I am a 20-year-old male. For the past several years my heart rate is as low as 48 while lying in bed. I have no symptoms. I am not an athlete. Should I be concerned? During the day it is around 70 bpm and with exercise, it gets to 160. It just gets to the 40s while I am in bed. Should I be worried about this?
