Chest Pain After Blood Donation
No: Donating blood cannot cause any type of serious chest pain in someone who is not anemic. Only 450 cc of whole blood is donated at one time, less than 10% of one's blood volume. Donating blood too often might deplete someone's blood supply sufficient to cause cardiovascular type chest pain, but that is usually prohibited. It is not advisable to donate blood more than every 3 months. ...Read more
Multiple causes: Chest pain can occur for a variety of reasons; ischemic heart disease, esophageal spasm, dissecting aortic aneurysm, mitral valve prolapse, pericarditis, pulmonary embolis, pneumonia, chest wall pain (costochrondritis), pleurisy, etc. Your BP looks good and since you have "no other symptoms" the cause is most likely benign.

I'm having intermittent chest pain on my left side, but my blood work is completely fine and I've been working out (cardio and strength) and have had?
Chest pain on my left side:
Have you ever had, chest trauma, such as MVA, months or years ago. Or pneumonia, or L side fluid collection which required drainage. Have you had imaging of the chest; CXR, CT or MRI. If not I suggest to have them done, to rule out any other condition, such as chronic pleuritis, or pulmonary disease, or even rib fracture.
In these conditions the blood testing will be normal.

Palpitations: The sensation of thrusting heart beat can be related to the irregular heartbeat. Other types of beat can occur as well but they would have seen it on the monitor.
