My ENT specialist only saw the report and not the scan and he says scan was ok. I have the scans so he is just going by the report
But I can see white spots on the MRI

A CT Scan will help the ENT because the scan looks at the physical levels, but not the neurological levels. Were the white spots, which you indicated, seen by your doctor? Sometimes what we see as white spots is nothing. A trained medical eye can best tell you what to interpret.
Lesions can be caused by many things including viral infections. While lesions do not dismiss the possibility of MS, lesions do not necessarily point to MS. If you want to push forward to resolve the matter, please set-up an appointment with a neurologist to review the MRI report.
A clear CT Scan means that the problem is not visible and may indicate that the problem is neurological.
