My cat threw up a hairball last night and then began sneezing. She sneezed alot for quite a while. Today she seems fine other than when she breathes she winces. I was thinking something happened when she sneezed so much. I don't hear anything when she breathes like anything in her nose.

It sounds like she may have aspirated ("inhaled") a small amount of stomach contents when she vomited the hairball. If she seems to feel fine and is eating well, I'd give her a day to see if her symptoms resolve. If not, an examination by your veterinarian is in order.
