Sources close to Hulk Hogan tell TMZ the wrestling legend was taken to the hospital today because of "excruciating back pain."

Hulk Hogan Hospitalized
We're told Hogan -- who has had several back surgeries throughout the years -- has had trouble the past few days and woke up this morning unable to get out of bed.

His girlfriend called the ambulance and, we're told, he was taken to a local hospital in Clearwater, FL.

Sources tell TMZ Hogan is still in the hospital where tests are being run.

UPDATE: Hulk took the time to post a video from hospital room. Intestinal fortitude, brutha!

This is what happens when you old guys try to keep up with those 20somethings. You need to let her get on top Hulk or the next time it's going to be your heart. You'll be coming and going at the same time.

The back pain is from all the $$$ that his x-wife and son have cost him.

Wow! I hope he is alright. He's still lived longer than most wrestlers out there. I certainly hope he pulls through whatever it is.

After the way this family treated the kid that they paralyzed, they shouldn't even be out in public.
