I just checked my blood pressure and it was 113/82

Blood pressure is ok: but your heart rate sounds a little high. That might be related to what you are doing or just did before you measured it. If you are sitting for 3 minutes relaxing I would suspect your heart rate should be closer to 60.

Recently my blood pressure has dropped in the evenings. Last night it was 144/59 and my pulse was 74. Is this something serious?
