Charlie Sheen Treated for Hernia -- No O.D.

1/27/2011 9:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen suffered a hiatal hernia in his stomach -- not an overdose -- and it may have triggered the 911 call that landed Charlie in the hospital.

Sources tell us the hernia is located in Charlie's stomach. The condition causes acid and food to back up into the esophagus ... and we're told it causes "horrible, horrendous pain."

Charlie will spend the night at the hospital.

We're told Charlie has had a hiatal hernia for years.

As we previously reported, Sheen was hospitalized early this morning.

I did. I clicked on it and it got a sorry, page not found message. I guess they were prepared for every possibility.

The guy is soooo sick and can´t even recognize it, which leave all the people who care for him and the other ones that profit from him, to enforce rehab ASAP. He is going to die if he´s not entering rehab, seriously.

My friend told me that the word from in the hospital is that he already died but they haven't released the story to the press.

Sorry to say this man is going to be dead before anyone faces the truth. Besides, hernia or not--he still is a junkie, and headed for disaster.

It's funny how you hear about all these binges and hospital trips of his - then inbetween knowing what happened, all the rumors (or facts) come out about the details of the parties that led to the hospital visit...then after its all said and done it's nothing about an overdose, nothing of his stomach getting pumped,etc., and he's back to work like it's nothing. Charlie Sheen should write a book/manual on "How To Party Like You Should Be Dead Already"..

Uh-huh....hernia....OK! Sheen must know something dirty about the producers at the network, or why else would they keep him on? pay him $1Mil an episode, so that he can continue to feed his drug habit?
