In brief: Do NOT ignore
Could be due to blood pressure drop, possibly secondary to a primary cardiac arrhythmia, epileptic seizures, medication reactions, anemias, thyroid problems, and of course tia's and strokes.
See your doctor and get this handled!

In brief: Yes, and no
Yes it's bad if you are driving or on stairs or crossing a busy street, but it may be a slow heart rate or aortic stenosis and not a stroke.
