Cardiologist 's  Response
Sinus findings seem to be co-incidental.
Symptoms, clinical findings or investigations often go hand in hand - but they need not necessarily corroborate in every case.
Your symptoms are highly suggestive of the effects of concussion. It is a question of time, before you are back to normal. Generally, the MRI is negative in such cases. If you do not improve in the next few days, you will have to see a neurologist / may even need a repeat scan - some changes appear with time....
Good luck
