Neurologist: Since your scattered neurologic symptoms are not explainable by one lesion and in view of your young age, I'm concerned about a demyelinating disorder like multiple sclerosis. A brain ct scan is not as effective as an MRI of the brain for detecting MS. I recommend consulting a neurologist for evaluation. Appropriate testing will be carried out.
