I currently have a concussion from a head injury 5 days ago. today i've developed a low grade fever, sinus congestion with no dripping, dizziness, & spinning sensation, in addition to my already prevalent headache. is this normal?

No: The dizziness and headaches perhaps but the sinus congestion and low grade fever no. I suspect that you are catching a cold as well but it is best to double check with your doctor ASAP to make sure that you do not have anything more serious such as subdural hematoma.
