I've heard of it happening to other people but now it's happening to me, a bunch of my old / unrelated questions and answers were downvoted in the space of a few minutes.

Do I report it and if so, how?

The very next day, the system works.

This is a phenomenon called serial downvoting. It happens quite regularly, but there are automated scripts to catch it, and reverse it.

Quoting from What can I do if I’m the victim of serial down voting? on Meta SE:

There are three ways to fix it:

  1. Do NOTHING. The daily vote anomaly script will pick it up and your rep will be recalculated automatically.
  2. If after 36 hours (give the script time to run) you still see a problem, then flag one of your posts and ask a moderator to look into the anomalous voting patterns.
  3. If it still hasn't been corrected, contact the SE team via the "contact us" link at the bottom of any page on the site.
