My 16 year old son has been complaining of rapid heart beat and sudden sweats. His TSH was perfect but he had elevated thyroglobulin antibodies. What ?

In brief: Check Heart Also

If his thyroid function is normal, make sure that he is not suffering from intermittant tachycardia or rapid heartrate.
This and other causes may occur. Continue seeing the doctor.

In brief: Yes

It sounds that it maybe his thyroid, a normal TSH by itself doesn't rule out thyroid disease.
He needs further testing done.
