In brief: Doubtful
Spina bifida occulta is usually just a failure of the arch of the most inferior vertebrae to form fully.
It is almost never associated with bowel and bladder dysfunction. That being said, if you are suspicious with persistent symptoms, see your family md for evaluation and possibly an MRI to rule this out.
