PVC's/PAC's/Sinus Bradycardia/Sinus Tachycardia 27 Male

Hello so I am a 27 year old male, 5'8, 200 Lbs. I got a loop recorder (Reveal XT by Medtronic) Implanted almost 2 years ago to monitor my palpitations and fast heart rates that I would get. So far officially I have only been diagnosed with Sinus Arrhythmia aka Tachycardia & Bradycardia, and frequent PVC's. Every download I have sent to my EP Cardiologist in the last 2 years, however my device has detected AFIB multiple times, they still came to the conclusion that it was not "true afib" and just sinus arrhythmia. Well lately I have been getting episodes of  super sudden very fast heart rates 140-185 at rest, well induced possibly by a panic attack. Anyway I went to the ER and the EKG and blood tests all looked good, but when I went to see a cardiologist today to interpret my device he says I DO have Afib, and that I am in it most of the time. Could these sinus tachycardia episodes be being read wrong? Could they really be ARVT or ARNVT? This cardiologist was not an EP, just general cardiologist. He wants to throw me on beta blockers but I said I wanted a second opinion because my sleeping heart rate is 30-42bpm............ Any ideas on this? I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder and also GERD.

Lately my liver levels were all elevated as well low potassium
