In march i had a uti for the first time in my life. Went to urologist and had all "mechanical tests" with no issues. During testing I was diagnosed with a neurogenic bladder... retaining urine.

I was born with spinal bifida occult and was tested for tethered cord. The test showed no tethering but did show multiple disc degeneration and a few herniated disc.

My question is can a herniated disc at c3 c4 pushing on Mt spinal cord cause my retention?
