In brief: Hip pain with sneeze

"hip pain" caused by sneezing might represent a lumbar disc problem.The increase in pressure cause by the sneeze can affect nerves near the lumbar discs.
This is called "referred pain" . The other possibility is a groin hernia. Again, the increased pressure in the belly from the sneeze causes the hernia to bulge and cause pain.

In brief: ? Low Back Pain

Might actually be low back pain radiating to the hip area.
Sneezing can cause increased pressure on nerves leading to that kind of pain. See your orthopaedist.
