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.

Martin Sheen is a great progressive humanitarian: how on earth did he produce such a flunky son?

He's an idiot along w/ the rest of the Sheens. Liberals always make bad people! What a great role model he is for the kid on 2 1/2 men. Guess the half man is Charlie.

I am extremely disappointed in TMZ for presenting this "hernia" story as the reason for Charlie's hospital visit today as fact and out of perspective. This "hernia" explanation is being given by his publicist, Stan Rosenfield, the very same publicist that told us his last hospital visit in NYC in October was "an allergic reaction" to medication. Really??? You can imagine my dismay upon reading about the "hernia" from what I thought was my most reliable source of truth and reality, tmz.com, only to find on cnn.com, that this whole "hernia" reasoning was being presented by the publicist. Shame on you, tmz!!!!! I expect better from you!!!

"hiatel hernia", he and Hasslehoff are fighting over the world's most obscure conditions to name their latest OD's on.

DUMBASS CHARLIE.

Hernia...but his ex-wife and his parents were called to his bedside? And he was reported to be in "serious" condition? And the newest addition to his porn playmate harem already "has a lawyer" (this from Radaronline.com) and "is not commenting?" Sounds like a lot more than a hernia to me. Dude's been asking for a way out for a long time; here's an exit point -- either live or die, make up your mind.
