    Smile feel very dizzy/drowsy

    The hot weather makes feel very dizzy/drowsy. I don't feel like doing any work now.


    Do both dizzy and drowsy fit in the above case? If yes, are they the same in meaning? Thanks.

    "Dizzy" means that you feel lightheaded, slightly disoriented, as if you might faint.
    "Drowsy" means that you feel tired, somewhat lazy, and all you really want to do is lay down and take a nap.

    Either word would work in your sentence, but it depends upon which meaning you're trying to convey.
