Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
You need not worry for this as it is normal process.As blood loss occurs due to poor oxygenation you may suffer from tingling numbness and temporary loss or diminished sensation.

Hope this clears all your doubts,

thanks for choosing health care magic.Dear first of all congratulations for this noble thing that you are doing.please keep it up.Normally when blood is donated a blood pressure cough or light tourniquet is applied above the needle for improving venous return and increase the flow.this leads to this kind of sensation.When this is released the sensation goes in couple of minutes.
