blood pressure and heart rate

Regarding blood pressure and resting heart rate, what readings would be considered a concern?
I''m 27 year-old female (5ft11"  and broad-build). I''m no athlete, but I do exercise 2-3 times a week for 30min average on each occasion (swim, run, hot yoga) - though not quite trim and slim, I''m of average fitness.
My RHR can be anywhere from 45 to 55bpm and my blood pressure (as tested about 3 weeks ago was about 100/60)

I''ve struggled for the last 5 years or so with chronic fatigue.
I often worry that my lethargy might have something to do with my low heart rate. Could this be so? Would it be a waste of time having this checked out with a doctor?

Dear Anon
I think it may be wise to just have a general heart examination and ECG to exclude a possible heart bradicardia (abnormal slow heartbeat)

It may be worth your while to also check your iron levels and thyroid hormone levels.
