What could this be? I'm scared!

I am a 25 year old female. I'm not over weight at all, exercise and eat as healthy as I possibly could. I have a couple drinks here and there but all in moderation. The one issue I have to admit is that I do smoke. Now that all these health issues are arising, I am going to be hopefully quitting soon. Lately I have been having this really odd pain right under my heart. It's kind of right below the breast. It's not extremely painful but more annoying than anything. Also, I have been getting strange numbness in my hands...typically after I have a couple alcoholic drinks OR after I am fatigued from not getting enough sleep the evening before. The heart issue and the numbness do not happen at the same time so I don't know if their associated with each other or what. I do know both my father and mother have no heart issues but both of my fathers parents had heart disease. Also, my father is pre-diabetic. Another factoring issue that worries is me is I do have some dental issues. I have had an dental abscess for years now and I often wonder if maybe the infection has spread into my blood stream, is this possible? I did make an appointment earlier today but the soonest they can get me in is in two weeks so I kind of have to wait it out unless of course it gets worse. I was just curious as to if anyone here has experienced any of these issues and if you had gotten a diagnosis. I am just trying to research as much on the topic as I can before I visit the doc.
Thanks in advance =)
