Go to ER: Hello - you need to go to the emergency room right away to make sure you are not having a heart attach. You should never wait with chest pain - especially pressure on the left side.

Go to the ER: While your chest pain could be related to back spasms, at 52, chest pain is cause for concern. May or may not be related to donating blood, but you should have it evaluated and not wait around. Chest pain can be from very minor causes and also from heart disease, blood clot in the lung and others.
