20 year old female, heart attack?

I'm 20 years old and I'm generally healthy. I've been having all sorts of pain for the past month and I'm worrying, at first I blamed it on a missed period, which I still didn't get, it started with stomach pains that I've never felt before, I can't really describe them but they were mostly on the sides.
The last couple of weeks however, I've been experiencing aches on my left arm (which seemed to ease after I applied a muscle relaxing gel) and my upper and middle back area on both sides. And the last couple of days I've been having some chest discomfort, which comes and goes but it is noticeable. There isn't any obvious shortness of breath but I occasionally find my heart pounding and get a little dizzy so it gets kinda hard to breathe.

In addition, I feel a weird burning head ache on the lower back head area but it also comes and goes and doesn't happen very often.
What could this be and what doctor should I go see?
