I sneezed really hard, then felt a sharp radiating pain across my upper chest and shoulders. Pain went away in like 20 seconds. What caused that pain?

In brief: Muscle pain

When you sneeze really hard you you use upper body muscles and some times you can strain your muscles and that might have caused pain in chest and shoulders.
You dont need to do anything unless pain returns.
