Sinus problems and swelling?


Does anyone experience sinus congestion with symptoms such as facial swelling and leg swelling?

I noticed that my face often swells up when I am eating. The swelling goes down gradually and is worse with some foods. I get congestion often, but if I stick to fruits or steamed vegetables for a few days, my sinuses seem to drain better and the congestion clears up. However, when my sinuses start to drain, I often get very dizzy and tired, along with severe swelling of calves and face. The swelling only happens when my sinuses are draining, and it feels like really bad fluid retention. Initially I thought it was some kind of food allergy, but I got tested and nothing came up. The blood test result also came back normal, with normal thyroid levels etc. I'm at a loss at what the problem could be.
