High/changing heart rate. Veins in legs.

My heart rate when laying down is as low as 47 as high as 72, when I stand up it goes up to 115 or so, regardless of what it was at rest.Most the entire day I can feel my heartbeat and am very aware of it, a painful dull feeling,can feel the beat in my arms legs and chest. Lately also when standing up the veins around my ankles get very big, and now after running one of them gets very big in one spot and pulses with my heartbeat(you cant see the vein anywhere except that spot which raises up about 1/2 of an inch high about the size around of a dime).Also when standing I can feel my heartbeat pulsing real hard in my legs.I excercise 3 or 4 times a week and my heart rate goes to 170 with hardly any exertion.I have been excercising regularly the past year(cardio with heartrate over 160 for 30-45mins) and am in good shape.(6'2" 190 lbs)I have also woken up several times with a racing heart rate and both arms feeling somewhat numb.I have also noticed I am extremely sensitive to alcohol now, if I drink a single beer I can feel terrible like my blood pressure is real high.Any ideas what could be causing this?
