In brief: can be related

If your pulse is fast enough, it would make your BP drop- usually over 150 in adults.
How fast have you measured it to be? Some things can make the pulse fast and the BP low like hemorrhage, dehydration, fever/sepsis, heart attack, thyroid excess, out of control diabetes, various drugs to name a few. How's your general health?
