Weird bouncing feelings when walking.

Over the past two days, I have had a "bouncing" feeling when I walk. What's up?

The best way to describe the feeling is that it feels like the floor is soft. It's a little bit like dizziness or being on a boat, but I don't really feel it when I am not moving. It is strongest when I am walking - it feels like I am bouncing or walking on a rubber mat. It comes and goes in terms of intensity. I can also sort of feel it when I move my head around (it feels like my balance is moving slower than my head, if that makes sense), but walking is when I feel it strongest.
I've had a pretty stressful period at work with bad sleep. I've also had some recent plane travel. Maybe my inner ear is messed up? I don't have any other neuro-type symptom (i.e. confusion, speech problems, weakness, vision is fine, etc.)
If it's my inner ear, is there anything I can do about it?
I know YANMD. Thanks
