I had an ischemic finger for 30 min following a blood donation and then kayaking the next day. Is it raynauds or vasospasm?

In brief: Possibly both

What you are describing can be reynauds phenomenon.
The underlying problem with r is likely a vasospasm of the small arterial capillaries, generally in the fingers, though the process can affect the distal portions of body, tip of nose, toes.
