Light roaring in left ear, volume varies day to day. Sometimes dizziness and nausea. But all symptoms subside after I vomit or just fade away. Avm?

In brief: Not likely

This does not sound like the typical presentation of an avm. Avms or av fistulas near the head regions have been reported to have a bruit which is a roaring type sound.
However, these tend to be constant. You should have this checked out by a physician.

In brief: Doubt AVM

Sounds more like viral labrynthitis (inner ear infection) depending on your age, how long it's been happening, however, emesis (vomiting) in conjunction with CNS symptoms could mean something serious, like a mass lesion.
You need to see your doctor right away who may want to do some imaging studies, like a brain mri.
