Sneeze followed by tingling sensation and slight paralysis

When I sneeze, my arms tingle and go lame for about a minute afterwards. This varies (not with intensity of sneeze) from sneeze to sneeze.

Is this indicative of something bigger or is there a simple explanation.

EP1, it might be due to a change in blood pressure, but the best would be to see your doctor and make sure nothing serious is the matter. Good luck.
