Everytime I sneeze, I get a shooting pain in my chest, arms and neck that lasts about 30 seconds. What does it mean?

In brief: Cervical nerve root

My first concern is a problem with the nerves that emerge from the vertebral column in your neck, compressed by bone or synovium when chest pressure increases.
This will require at least a good physical exam and probably some imaging studies. Good luck.

In brief: Probably muscular

If you are having symptoms you described only when you sneeze, it may be due to muscle strain.
