Blow your nose, blow out your pitching arm...

Sometimes when I sneeze, my whole upper body hurts. Specifically my shoulders and, to a lesser degree, my elbows. It almost feels like I'm being punched. What gives?

Granted, this doesn't happen ALL the time. But, man, when it does, it's a hard, dull pain that's like when your leg falls asleep times 10. The injurious sneezes don't seem harder than the non-painful ones.
Though that's guesswork on my part. I don't have a sneeze radar gun or anything.
This has been happening since I was in my late teens and doesn't seem like it's going away anytime soon. So should I worry or not?
Is this a syndrome? A sign of something worse? Or just the price you pay for having a nose and a flexible ligature?
