Bret Michaels Suffers Brain Hemorrhage

4/23/2010 5:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bret Michaels was rushed to the hospital late Thursday night after suffering a massive hemorrhage near his brain stem, this according to a rep for the singer.

Michaels is reportedly in critical condition at an undisclosed hospital. According to the rep, Michaels was suffering from excruciating headaches earlier in the day.

Michaels underwent several tests, the rep says, including CAT Scans and MRIs.

Michaels suffered from a "subarachnoid hemorrhage" -- bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

Earlier this month, Michaels was rushed to the hospital after experiencing stomach pains -- he ended up having his appendix removed.

I, too, had a subarachnoid hemmorage, I was 25 years old. Happened during delivery of my first child. It is bleeding in the spider-like veins covering the brain and yes, can be very dangerous. Mine happened because my blood pressure went through the roof and popped the tiny blood vessel. I am now 74 years old and have never had a recurrence and never had any after effects. I wish you a speedy recovery, Bret.

Bret, you are not a quitter. You give everything your all and then some. As Trump said, "you are a champion". You have overcome so many obstacles over your life and you continue to deal with your diabetes. I can't believe what you've gone through and I wish you the very best and speedy recovery. Also, my prayers and undying love are there for you and your daughter. I have loved you since you came out in 86-87. I'm just a year younger than you. No matter what, you are always upbeat and positive about anything and everything, so, keep positive about this. You always say "Rock On", well, you have to be here to keep us faithful fans Rockin On. Love ya Bret! Shannon Goddard from Windsor, Ontario, Canada
