Needs evaluation: There can be many reasons for feeling "dizzy, weak, light-headed, and faint". Certainly low blood pressure may cause these symptoms as can a problem with you inner ear resulting in vertigo. You should check your BP sitting and standing when you have these symptoms. Depending on the results would need further evaluation.

Many caused: There are many possible causes of those symptoms, and it is very difficult to give further advice or guidance without a more thorough examination and evaluation. If you had an evaluation with normal results so far, then the more serious potential causes are much less likely. It is best to continue working with your doctor to find the cause.
