1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

The two aren't necessarily related entities unless your thyroid function tests suggest that your thyroid is overactive.
Antithyroid antibodies can cause a transient hyperthyroidism sometimes. However, if your thyroid function tests are normal then something else is causing your rapid heart rate.
