In brief: One theory

If you have an underlying neck or back problem such as a herniated disc, sudden movements such as sneezing or coughing can potentially cause the disc to exert pressure at the nerve and cause pain.
A forceful sneeze could certainly cause a temporary pull/strain in the muscle as well.
