It is likely just: a muscle strain from the force of the sneeze. Now it is irritated each time you repeat. Potentially you could have an intraabdominal organ issue (splenic bruise or rupture) but you would be a lot sicker and the pain would not resolve easily. It will most likely resolve in a few days when you stop sneezing. If you or it get worse go and get checked out by a health care professional.
