The QL is a secondary back stabilizer. For some reason, it’s working too hard for you. If you sneezed and it went out, the “discs” are 99% involved. Sneezing increases the pressure around your spine and discs don’t like that. The possibility that you’d strain a muscle sneezing is very unlikely. I also agree, it sounds like referred pain, not sciatica pain.
