Tanning, Lentigos: Tanning in tanning artificial tanning beds puts you at a greater risk for developing all types of skin cancer. Notably, tanning bed use increases your risk for melanoma by 75%. I strongly advise against ever using tanning beds from this point forward. As for the black spots, they are most likely benign solar lentigos, but they should be evaluated by a physician - as any new lesions should be.

Hair Loss: Hair loss can be caused by a number of things. In someone in your age group specifically, it is even more important to have it evaluated by a physician. The hair loss could be associated with changes in your thyroid hormone levels, skin conditions, and even related to stress. Please consult your physician or dermatologist.

Connective tissue dx: The symptoms you describe can be on a spectrum for connective tissue diseases. You should work with your physicians to get to the bottom of it. You may need to see a few different specialists to work out your symptoms. I would start by seeing your primary care doctor and take it from there. The physicians most familiar with connective tissue diseases are rheumatologists and dermatologists.
