In brief: Probably a good idea
Syncope is common.
Common causes: emotion, dehydration, medications. Abnormalities of heart rhythm increase with age. Cardiomyopathy is rare but possible in younger patients. If first episode and there is a clear precipitant it is probably not necessary to see doc right away. But if recurrent or no clear explanation see doc soon.
