1 doctor agrees

In brief: Generally no

A simple faint restores adequate blood flow to the brain as you become horizontal, and recovery is forthcoming.
If you die from a faint it can be from a fatal arrhythmia (such as from long qt syndrome or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.). A physician can help determine if there is cause for concern.
