Sweaty hands while writing. ADHD testing, audio visual testing reports normal. Is this a medical problem?

I have a student who complains that when he writes his hand feels like little balls are rolling inside it and it gets sweaty. This students a very long time to complete any written work. We did auditory and visual testing, ADHD testing, ot eval, psyc. And everything is in normal range. Could this be a medical issue? I really want to help this little guy
