In brief: Yes, but....

...There are many other possible explanations.
Is the fainting episode a true "faint" or dizziness or some other symptom? Other reasons may include low blood sugar, dehydration, medications/drugs/toxins, hyperventilation, abnormal cardiac rhythms (an ekg is imperative), and the common "vasovagal faint" or cardogenic syncope, which is usually diagnosed if the workup is otherwise negative.
