Yes: Fluctuations in blood pressure can cause classic postural vertigo/dizziness. When your BP is too low, especially if you stand too quickly etc, and your BP drops, you can decrease oxygen carrying blood to the brain and get weak, lightheaded and dizzy. See your dr. To get an evaluation for dizziness, including treating your BP as a possible cause.
