This sounds like nerve root compression. That is, compression of one or more nerves, just as they come off the spinal cord and pass through the vertebral bodies. It is a snug but not usually tight fit but some individuals have congenitally small "tunnels" for these nerves to pass through. This can run in families.

Sneezing causes a transient rise in pressure between vertebrae. This can cause the nerves with a tight fit to be compressed. Professional football players call these "stingers".

A neurologist or rheumatologist would be the type of specialist to evaluate this.
