Is having sudden lightheadness a cause for concern?

I was going for a walk today when suddenly I felt lightheaded, I was feeling faintish and my head felt heavy, like a pressure. This lasted for a few seconds.
It felt like a pressure in the middle of the head and a fainting ringing in the middle of the head. I had tingling feeling in my head too, followed by feeling really anxious, maybe anxious due to the feelings.

I had it before, couple of months ago, I didn't bother seeing a doctor about it because it was only once, and I was fine the next day.

I'm fine now, beginning to feel like air or pressure in my ears again , humming sound in my head that comes and goes..
But I think I'm ok. I tried popping it, but it doesn't do much.

I am 30 years old, medium weight around 9.5 stone.

I do get the feeling of water in my head sometimes and feel clumsy sometimes.
I get that feeling similar to when you're really sleepy and want to sleep, but longer now and then.

I had a blood test in a&e after experiencing similar but much longer feelings last year, blood test result was normal.

This definitely sounds like an inner ear problem.  I have had it too.  You sound like you know how to do the reverse ear pops which help to clear it.  You might try also taking an antihistamine over the counter type and ibuprofen.  That combination helps me stave off an attack.
