General & Family Physician Dr. Vakul Aren's  Response
Sneezing and arm pain/elbow and forearm pain and tingling are related.the latter can occur when the nerves in the spine are compressed/pinched while sneezing,this leads to related pain in the arms and elbows.The cervical spinal nerve root compression because of a herniated disc or due to bony growth or stenosis can cause such pains.A MRI Scan of the cervical spine should be able to help identify the problem.
